ASPCA Grants provide support to a variety of U.S.-based nonprofit animal welfare organizations through cash grants, sponsorships, and training. While we generally do not place a ceiling on grant amounts, most grants range between $500 and $10,000. Please bear this in mind when submitting your request unless otherwise instructed.
