What is the Linda Fund?

The Linda Fund provides our neediest cats with life-saving care. We promise each Tabby's Place kitty that we will give her everything she needs to thrive. Since our cats come from hopeless situations, they often require costly vet care.

The Linda Fund is dedicated to such emergency and specialty medical services. Your gift will care for the most desperate cats in their hour of need.

Who is Cheddar, the cat skating up the cheese?

Cheddar is the poster cat for the 2018 Linda Fund. He came to Tabby's Place as a fragile epileptic kitten, in need of world-class specialty care.

The number on Cheddar's sign is the total amount donated to date, after it has been matched.

The "Goal" is twice the matching pool. This represents the amount that will be raised if total donations are as large as the matching pool (so all matching fund are expended).

Here are the calculations for the current figures:
matching pool
goal x 2 =
donations with match x 2 =
match remaining pool - donations before match
= -
CHECK goal = donations * 2 + match remaining * 2
= + * 2
