Zoetis celebrated a contributory milestone in 2023 with its continuation of support to Folds of Honor. Rounding out the second half of 2023, Zoetis exceeded $1 million in donations in its two years of support for the organization. Proceeds from the sales of select Zoetis products continue to raise funds for Folds of Honor scholarships.

Based in Owaso, Oklahoma, Folds of Honor provides academic scholarships to the spouses and children of men and women who have fallen or been disabled while serving in the U.S. armed forces or as first responders. Jared Shriver, senior vice president, U.S. Livestock, Equine & Platinum Performance, Zoetis, presented a check to Folds of Honor at the beginning of 2024.

"Including our 2023 contribution, Zoetis has helped support 241 scholarships for the spouses and children of the heroes who protect our communities and our freedoms," he said. "We are grateful to be part of a meaningful organization and look forward to continuing our support in 2024."

Providing scholarships for students who are pursing agricultural and animal production studies is important to Zoetis and reiterates its commitment to supporting the future of agriculture and industry leaders. Through Folds of Honor, Zoetis is able to reach a network of students at more than 90 universities and land-grant institutions across the country, with several scholarship recipients majoring in agriculture or pre-veterinary studies.

"We are grateful to Zoetis for the generous and heartfelt contribution the past two years to Folds of Honor," said Ben Leslie, the foundation's chief development officer. "The company's significant gift continues to make a life-changing difference for our recipients. Philanthropy is evident in Zoetis' culture, and we're thankful to be included in that commitment."

Zoetis is committed to supporting the legacy of leaders in agriculture and communities across the United States while making a difference in the lives of military and first-responder families.
