Our Grant Philosophy
Franklin’s Friends grants funds to deserving local 501(c)(3) and government animal welfare agencies. Grant applications are rigorously reviewed for veterinary and financial responsibility. We strive to support three pillars of animal welfare: Shelter/Rescue, Spay/Neuter, and Community Education. All funds granted are restricted to the use specified in the grant application.
Guidelines for Grant Applicants
Franklin’s Friends accepts grant applications from local 501(c)(3) and government agencies in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Volusia, Lake, Polk, Brevard, or Hillsborough Counties year round. Each organization may only apply once per calendar year. We will not consider applications from individuals. We will not provide grants for the purchase or improvement of property or buildings. We will not grant funds to organizations who do not treat heartworm positive dogs with immiticide injections unless they are applying for funds to allow them to do so. All funds granted are restricted to the purpose specified in the grant application which must be aligned with our mission. Any organization receiving a grant from Franklin’s Friends is required to furnish invoices monthly demonstrating how our funds were spent, post the grant on their social media, and display signage (we will provide) recognizing Franklin's Friends' gift.
