Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofits for a broad range of animal protection programs, projects, and activities of national interest. Funding is intended to support comprehensive, creative, solution-based models that help to reduce suffering, that lead to systemic change, and that promote a more compassionate society.

The Foundation supports nationally-significant efforts to ensure the humane treatment, care and well-being of domestic animals and the protection and conservation of endangered wildlife and wildlife in captivity in the U.S. 

Focus areas:

Domesticated and Companion Animals:

These grants include nationally-significant programs to support the humane treatment, care and well-being of domesticated animals, particularly companion animals. Grants focus on spay/neuter programs to reduce overpopulation, veterinary services, advocacy and public education programs to prevent animal cruelty. Grants to select animal rescue and shelter organizations in specific geographic regions are primarily at the Foundation's initiative.

Wildlife Protection and Conservation:

These grants include nationally-significant projects to protect and conserve wildlife, support critical advocacy, policy and education initiatives, and provide sanctuary care for primates. Grants made to select organizations in specific geographic regions are primarily at the Foundation's initiative.

Grants for domestic animal shelters and wildlife rescue organizations are made only at the initiative of the Foundation. Unsolicited requests for domestic animal shelters will not be considered.

Pre-Application Information:

2021 Proposal Deadlines:

- January 8, 2021
- March 26, 2021
- July 9, 2021
- September 24, 2021

Proposals must arrive at the Foundation’s office by the dates listed to be considered for a grant at the next quarterly Board meeting. All proposals received will be acknowledged by email, usually within a week of receipt. While the Foundation does not guarantee it, most decisions on full proposals are made within the quarter. Occasionally, proposals are deferred to a subsequent quarter for reasons of volume, need for additional review, or other circumstances. Applicants will be notified if a deferral occurs.

Prospective grantees are encouraged to review the guidelines. If they believe their work may fit into the Foundation’s interests, they should contact the Foundation before submitting a full proposal. Contact can be by telephone, short email, or letter of inquiry.

To reduce paper and encourage timely submissions, applicants may submit Letters of Inquiry and full proposals electronically through the portal. Prospective applicants may want to consider submitting a Letter of Inquiry as a preliminary step before submitting a full proposal. Although a Letter of Inquiry is not required before submitting a full proposal, the Foundation does recommend it specifically for (1) documentary requests; (2) when an organization is new to the Foundation; or 3) if the applicant is unsure whether the request fits the Foundation’s guidelines.

Once an LOI is submitted, please do not submit a full proposal unless contacted by a staff member.

Although applicants are encouraged to apply electronically through the Foundation's portal, emailed or faxed proposals or letters of inquiry are accepted with prior approval from the Foundation.
