Grant Guidelines and Application Process






Information for Grant Applicants

Applications are not longer being accepted for funding in 2023.  A schedule for 2024 applications will be posted in mid-November.      

Letters of Intent (LOI) from new applicants should be emailed to Karen Kannenberg at director@kennethscottcharitabletrust.org one month prior to each deadline for approval to submit an application. Previous grantees are also asked to contact Karen by email one month prior to submitting an application, however an LOI is not required.  

Proposals from humane organizations based in the USA for projects designed to enhance the well-being of animals in Ohio and elsewhere in the Great Lakes region will be considered.

Humane organizations with innovative, cost-effective projects that demonstrate a commitment to improving the well-being of animals, especially those in under resourced areas or belonging to disadvantaged social groups should consider applying.
