Grant Guidelines


Mission of the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust

The Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust is a private foundation focused on preventing cruelty to animals and promoting the humane treatment of animals, particularly companion animals such as dogs and cats, and other species of animals commonly kept as household pets.  The Foundation also supports efforts to protect the well-being of urban-suburban wildlife, captive exotic wildlife, farmed animals, working animals, and non-human animals generally.  It extends in perpetuity the generosity toward animals in need shown by Kenneth Allen Scott during his lifetime, and assists those who care for them today.

The Foundation invites proposals from humane organizations based in the USA for projects designed to enhance the well-being of animals in Ohio, elsewhere in the Great Lakes region, or on a National scale.  It will not consider requests from localized groups in other areas of the country, or for activities taking place outside the USA.   Note also that to be eligible, 100% of an organization's governing board members must have made a monetary contribution to it during the past year.  Organizations that cannot meet this standard should not apply.

Proposal deadlines are March 15 or September 15 for Ohio proposals, and June 15 or December 15 for Great Lakes region or National proposals.  Please send us a one-page letter of inquiry (LOI) outlining your project and its cost prior to sending a new proposal.
