Grants generally ranging between $10,000 and $50,000 to Great Lakes Region, USA nonprofit organizations, museums, wildlife centers, zoos, and educational institutions for programs that improve the well-being of animals. Grant applicants are asked to contact staff and to submit a letter of inquiry. Funding is intended to promote the humane treatment and prevent animal cruelty, particularly of companion animals.

The Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust considers support for humane organizations in Ohio and portions of the other seven states in the Great Lakes watershed (including IL, IN, MI, WI, Western PA, Upstate NY, and Northeastern MN).
The Foundation seeks innovative, cost-effective projects that demonstrate the region’s commitment to improving the well-being of animals, especially those in underserved areas or belonging to disadvantaged social groups. Initiatives that are metropolitan, multi-county, statewide or regional or involve collaborations among multiple agencies are preferred.
