They will talk with you on the phone and email, so ask your questions first. This will not be your general operating fund grant but if you have a program that needs supplies, it would probably be great. They are specific to pets.

BPF has their hearts in the right place and they are doing their homework to understand the field they are funding. It's not every day that a corporation creates a foundation to benefit animals - thank you to the founder for making animals a priority. It is deeply appreciated.

Check their website frequently for grant period updates. The dates change! And if you receive funding, you have to wait a year before re-applying. If you join as a Partner for Pets, they will give you a product (vacuum) for your fundraiser auction annually (if you send back a report). Pretty cool!
