How to apply for a grant

We provide grants for Welfare, Rescue and Support organisations.

The trust provides funds for three purposes, in accordance with its Trust Deed:

The application process

  1. You should state clearly the specific details of the costs for which you are requesting funding, and for what purpose and over what period the funding is required.
  2. The Trustees meet four times a year and will wish to see your organisation’s latest audited and signed report and accounts and (if applicable) the registered number of your charity.
  3. Generally, pure building costs or requests from organisations whose concern is not predominantly with the dog (e.g. general animal sanctuaries) do not receive favourable attention from the Trustees. Similarly, grants are rarely made to individuals and not to organisations having a political reason.
  4. Grants which are payable over a number of years will be subject to a satisfactory annual review and report of progress.
  5. Please send information to: Mr Richard Fairlamb (email), The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, London W1J 8AB. Tel:  020 7518 6874, fax: 020 7518 1014.

The names of recipients of grants are listed in the Trust’s accounts and are also listed in the Kennel Club Journal and on this page in the Charitable Trust section of the Kennel Club website.
