A 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization for the Benefit

of Equines In Need

BEWF's Grant Proposals and Awards are Considered Annually

Thank you for your interest in a grant from Brennan Equine Welfare Fund. As you can appreciate, we receive requests from hundreds of organizations every year.

 

Grant proposals for 2019 are by invitation only and unsolicited grant proposals will not be accepted.

 

To seek out grantees, BEWF will actively investigate a wide range of equine organizations and invite proposals from potential grantees who align with our mission as well as based on criteria/priorities set by Brennan Equine Welfare Fund.

Criteria

  • Must be a 501(c)(3) equine rescue/retirement/rehabilitation/adoption shelter, or have permission to utilize another organization's 501(c)(3) status as fiscal agent.
  • Must be in existence and operating as a 501(c)(3) for at least three (3) consecutive years as of April 30 of the current year.
  • Programs considered may include, but are not limited to, the rescue, care, and rehabilitation of injured, old, abused, starved, slaughter-bound, and neglected horses, as well as those horses used for medical experimentation (including Premarin mares and foals), and permanent care for aged equines living out their final years.
  • Qualifying organizations provide either (1) a permanent sanctuary in which rescued and aged equines may live out their last years in peace and find a dignified retirement, and/or (2) a rehabilitation and proven adoption program that serves in the best interest of the equines that are placed.
  • Brennan Equine Welfare Fund will show preference to well run, financially responsible, all - or mostly all - volunteer based facilities.
  • We do not consider or award grants to private foundations.
  • All things being equal, preference will be made to Global Foundation of Animal Sanctuaries or Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance Accredited or Verified facilities.
  • All things being equal, preference will be made to those facilities with an adoption contract that includes, but is not limited to:

- No breeding

- No racing

- A follow-up policy that regularly checks up on the adopted horse(s) and mandates a

repossession back to the facility if the animal is being neglected or in any danger.

- A take-back policy for all equines no matter the reason the adoption may fail.

- PLEASE NOTE: This does not apply to those facilities that offer retirement or permanent

sanctuary only.

Brennan Equine Welfare Fund is a fund-raising, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Grants from Brennan Equine Welfare Fund are used to serve equine rescue shelters across the country which provide dignity to final years of aged, injured, abused, starved and slaughter-bound horses, as well as those used in medical experimentation.
