Applying for a grant from Save the Rhino

If you've read our guidelines and you think your programme or project is eligible


In reality, unless you represent one of the programmes we support, it is highly unlikely that we will be able to add any new ones. Before you apply to us for funds, therefore, we strongly recommend that you email with a short explanation (1 page maximum) so that she can indicate whether it is worth developing a full proposal.

If you then decide to go ahead and apply, we have a standard grant application form, which you can download from our website here.

You can apply at any time of year, and they will be considered at our quarterly Trustees’ meetings, normally held in March, June, September and December.

Applications should be sent to; Cathy will have an initial read through and come back to you with any immediate questions, and then table them for the Trustees.

Cathy gives the Trustees her own recommendations, having considered each proposal against a range of weighted criteria. She may also consult other funders (perhaps of the same programme) to discuss particular aspects of an application.

The Trustees may decide to fund, ask more questions before making a decision, or reject. Cathy aims to inform all applicants of their decision within a month of the Trustees’ meeting.
