Arizona foundation offers opportunity for animal welfare grants

The Arizona Community Foundation is seeking proposals for funding from nonprofit organizations across the state to promote and advance animal welfare. Funding is available through a collection of animal-related funds established with the Arizona Community Foundation.

Grant monies are available for projects that support wild animals and domestic pets in Arizona state boundaries that are ill or injured, need placement in a home or need to be rehabilitated and/or returned to their natural habitats.

The online application process opened Monday, July 6 and will close on Friday, July 24 at 5:00 p.m., according to a press release. Organizations wishing to compete for grants must have submitted their completed application by the close date.

The Arizona Community Foundation invites qualified organizations to submit funding requests in amounts ranging from $5,000 to a maximum of $20,000 to support projects that build capacity, leverage matching funds, engage community partners or otherwise demonstrate significant value to the community and animals served, according to the release.

For more information about the competitive grants process for animal welfare, contact a member of the ACF Grants Management Team at grants@azfoundation.org.
