Funding: Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust – grants for animal welfare and conservation of wildlife

The Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust provides grants to UK registered charities whose purposes are to:

  •         Benefit or protect animals
  •         Relieve animals from suffering
  •         Conserve wildlife
  •         Encourage the understanding of animals

UK registered charities that have independently examined up to date annual accounts and an active re-homing and rehabilitation policy for animals taken into care are eligible to apply.

Organisations involved with the conservation of wildlife, the rescue, rehabilitation, and (where possible) release of animals are also eligible to apply. The funding can be used for general running costs or capital purchases.

The maximum donation is £35,000.  The Trust may award smaller donations between the meetings at the discretion of the Chairman and Administrator of the Trust.

Repeat applications from charities are encouraged when further financial support is given if funds allow.

The next deadline to apply is the 15th of January 2020.

Applications must be made in writing only to:
