New Year, New Requests for Proposals

Two new grant application opportunities are available for organizations serving animals and seeking to jumpstart their 2013 fundraising efforts:

  • In honor of National Bird Day, the ASPCA is inviting funding proposals from organizations that rescue and provide adoption services for homeless pet birds. Each grant will range from $500-$5,000 and cannot exceed 10% of the recipient organization’s total annual budget. The deadline for online proposal submissions is February 15, 2013, and complete application guidelines are available on the ASPCA’s web site.

  • The Banfield Charitable Trust, based in Portland, OR, is making safety-net grants to help keep companion animals (including horses) with their owners by providing funding for nonprofit organizations and Meals on Wheels member associations that distribute pet food and provide veterinary and behavioral rehabilitation services for the pets of low-income families and individuals who are seriously ill, homebound, and/or physically disabled. Proposal submission deadlines fall quarterly on January 31, April 30, July 31, and October 31, 2013, and complete application guidelines are available on the Trust’s web site.
