The Rhode Island Foundation works to help thoughtful individuals, families, organizations, and corporations create smart, effective change.
To that end, the foundation welcomes applications for its Program for Animal Welfare. Through the program, grants will be awarded to organizations in Rhode Island or that serve Rhode Island working to promote and/or provide for the humane treatment of animals. (The program also supports organizations working more generally on the welfare of animals.) Grants are intended to support projects or programs that have a positive impact statewide or in individual communities with regard to the care, shelter, and maintenance of animals, education about the humane treatment of animals, and/or animal welfare in general.
Previously funded programs include statewide humane education efforts and low-cost spay and neuter initiatives. The foundation will consider capital projects.
See the Rhode Island Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
