The program was created in memory of Debra Joseph Diamond, Ph.D., an animal lover, best-selling author, financial analyst, and medium. Following a successful stint on Wall Street in the 1980s, she pivoted careers to focus on helping people in need.

With funding from the Charitable Fundraising Council, Help Pet Shelters has created the Debra Joseph Diamond Grant Program to honor her memory and love of animals by supporting the good work of animal shelters.
