Grants

The Foundation For Animals (FFA) Small Grants Program ($1,000-$5,000) has provided financial assistance for a wide variety of worthy projects to benefit both domestic and wild animals. Assistance for larger projects is primarily dedicated to the Helena area. Regarding projects involving wildlife, FFA works with the appropriate State and/or Federal Agencies that establish policies and regulations related to wildlife.

FFA’s Small Grant applications are accepted throughout the year and reviewed by the FFA board quarterly.  For more information regarding the next grant review schedule, please contact the Foundation at (406) 443-6532 or email your inquiry to mkfa@mt.net.
