What's New for 2020

Updated: Mar 1

The 2020 grant application is now available for download.

The deadline for organizations new to Two Mauds is June 30. The deadline for groups who have already received a grant from us is August 31. Why the different dates?

-Since Two Mauds conducts site visits, the earlier deadline allows for more time to meet with potential new grantees. A site visit does not guarantee funding.

Each year, grants are more & more competitive. Here are tips to increase your chances for a successful request:

-Read & follow all the instructions on the "Grantee Information" and "Grantee Narrative" and submit the attachments in the manner requested.

-Make sure you are self-funding your spay-neuter program. In other words, if your organization spends 100% of your budget on rescue & adoption initiatives and only offers spay-neuter assistance when you have grant funding, your grant will likely be considered last of all the submissions, if at all.

Why? My friend Stacy offers a nice example of a resource pyramid to explain the "why". Find it here or in this article.
