Many funding sources are available in the form of grants. Details about American Humane Association’s Meacham Memorial Foundation Grant, as well as other grant opportunities are available by clicking here.
Many grantors require an agency be incorporated as a nonprofit and be in receipt of its 501(c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue Agency. If your organization is not a 501(c)3 non-profit, you can find information at the IRS website at http://www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=96590,00.html.
American Humane Association also suggests that the person at your organization charged with applying for grants research the grant-writing process or take a class on how to write grants effectively.
