Applications for AAEP Foundation Funding Due May 1

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation is accepting applications for funding from nonprofit organizations and individuals that share its mission to improve the welfare of horses through support of equine research, education, benevolence, and the equine community until May 1.

Applications will be reviewed by the AAEP Foundation Advisory Council and board of directors in July.

The AAEP Foundation annually supports equine organizations, nonprofit groups, universities, and others who develop and implement programs that support the foundation’s mission to improve equine welfare. Consideration for funding will be given to those requests that are dedicated to the mission and objectives of the AAEP Foundation. Priority emphasis will be given to applications that have the most impact on the welfare of the horse on a national and international scope and for multiple horses or where emergency funding is needed. Funds will not be provided to “for-profit” individuals or groups, for retirement or rescue facilities, or for unsolicited equine research. Funding requests for emergency or equine disaster relief support or preparedness programs can be submitted to the foundation at any time.

Application instructions, requirements, and selection criteria are available through the “Apply for Funding” link on the foundation’s website.
