The objectives of the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust are to donate to UK registered charities whose purposes are to:
Benefit or protect animals
Relieve animals from suffering
Conserve wild life
Encourage the understanding of animals
Eligible applicant organisations will be a UK registered charity; have independently examined up to date annual accounts and an active re-homing and rehabilitation policy for animals taken into care.
Organisations involved with 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.
Donations usually range from £1,000 to £10,000. Smaller donations may be awarded between the meetings at the discretion of the Chairman and Administrator of the Trust. Larger donations have exceptionally been made.
Repeat applications from charities are encouraged, when further financial support might be given if funds allow.
The next deadline to apply is the 1st May 2019.
