Banfield Trust Grant Opportunity

The great folks at Banfield are offering another grant opportunity.  It is not for wildlife, but as I often mention…we love all animals!  The Banfield Charitable Trust is based in Portland, Oregon.  They are offering grants in amounts ranging from $500 to $10,000.  These grants are not for individuals, they are for not for profit registered 501(c) organizations.  The deadline is October 31.  To qualify, the not for profit organization should have an innovative program that offers a direct solution for helping people to avoid surrender of their companion animals.  The qualified organizations would be involved in work with companion pets, companion horse feeding programs and hospice patient/pet support.  The idea is to keep people with their pets through difficult times, including some kind of disaster situation.  Read more about how a group might qualify for a grant by going to the Banfield site  www.banfieldcharitabletrust.org and reading the RFP which is the Request For Proposal.  As with all grant awards there is a very specific way to apply for the funding.  It usually means that the organization complete the applicationform,  and offer supporting documents, one of which might be the manner in which the group intends to utilize the funds.  Good luck with your applications!
