Student Animal Welfare Clubs

APPLICATION SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 1st

OVERVIEW

The Animal Welfare Foundation of Canada (AWFC) has limited funds for small grants (up to a maximum of $2000 per club) available for animal welfare clubs at Canadian post-secondary institutions to support their activities.

AWFC asks clubs to direct this funding to educational activities that promote animal welfare aimed at club members, the student population in general and, where possible, the general public, to ensure the largest possible impact.

See past student club recipients to learn more about the type of projects we have funded in previous years. If you have any questions about the application process, please email info@awfc.ca.

HOW TO APPLY

Please apply submitting this form to  info@awfc.ca.

Deadline for proposals is March 1st of each year. Clubs will be informed of AWFC’s funding decisions by the end of April.
