The Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust is a regular supporter of animal welfare charities and gives out around £500,000 each year.
The Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust aims to support projects or activities encompassing one or more of the following:
- The benefit and protection of animals
- The relief of suffering in animals
- The conservation of wildlife
- The encouragement of a greater understanding of animals
Grants are normally in the range of £1,000 to £10,000, with decisions made three times a year. Smaller amounts however may be considered and grants of less than £1,000 can be processed outside of the grant deadlines.
If you apply for a grant you should expect a visit from a member of the charity prior to receiving a grant.
In order to apply applicants are required to complete a Charity applicant questionnaire as well as providing additional information that may be relevant.
The applicant questionnaire and further guidance can be found on the Trusts website.
