CAF Grants

CAF Grants: CAF (Culture and Animals Foundation) funds academic and artistic projects that raise public awareness about animal rights. Grants are awarded in three categories: Research (scholarly projects about animal advocacy and its cultural roots and impact); Creativity (original work by artists and thinkers that expresses positive concern for animals); and Performance (public performances and exhibitions to raise awareness of animal advocacy).

How much CAF foundation grant: Individual CAF grants normally are awarded in amounts ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. In some rare cases, CAF may elect to award partial funding to a grant applicant, which would cover a portion of the requested amount. CAF encourages applicants to apply for funding from other organizations, both before and after applying for a CAF grant, if the project scope and budget require.

Application Guidelines: CAF only awards grants for projects. CAF does not provide ongoing budgetary support for organizations or individuals.
CAF can provide support for salaries to complete applicant’s projects.
Grant amounts range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
On average, fewer than 20 grants are awarded annually.

CAF does not fund: “hands-on” projects, including animal rescue, public protest or trap-neuter-release programs;
species conservation projects, unless they include a commitment to animal rights and aspects of creativity, performance, or research;
projects that consist entirely of attending or speaking at a conference or conferences;
book production (CAF does support research and writing);
indirect costs: no portion of a CAF grant may be used for “administrative costs,” “overhead,” or any other form of indirect cost.
CAF does provide grants for documentary films and videos, but given the costs associated with both, applicants should show they have raised most of the money in advance of applying to CAF.
CAF does not accept grant applications for multiple projects.
Applicants are encouraged to develop a timeline for project completion and a budget that they can meet.
Applicants are encouraged to seek additional sources of funding for their projects, if the project’s budgets require this.
Applicants will be notified upon receipt of their complete applications.
Applicants will be notified of whether their application has been successful or not by early April.
