Grants ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 and grants of up to $15,000 to USA, Canada, and International organizations for outreach programs and research that focus on humane education. Funding is intended for projects that have a positive impact on society and that support a message of respect and kindness without advocating for a specific point of view, while respecting others' right to do the same.

There are two main categories of funding:
- Humane Education Outreach Programs
- Research on the Efficacy of Humane Education

Applicants are encouraged to review the hierarchy of human education that Latham Steps memorialize and to show how their proposal supports these principles:

- Kindness to Animals builds compassion and empathy for other living creatures. This is the first and truly foundational step that supports all the other steps above it.
- Kindness to Each Other is another important step, which guides the interaction between people of the same family or social group.
- Kindness to Other People guides the interaction between people of different families or social groups when they meet in a common place.
- Kindness to Our Country encourages national common respect for the laws of one’s own nation, traditions, and political structure.
- Kindness to Other Nations encourages respect for other nations and their unique laws and traditions.
-Kindness to The World shows respect for the whole world, for other nations collectively living their varied lives.
