Inquiries about grant applications or the grant process are only handled by email. Kindly email grants@trusthorses.org with any questions or comments, and you will receive a response promptly.

 

Upon submission, you will receive an automated e-mail at the address provided in the application as verification that your entry has been received. If you do not receive such an e-mail, please e-mail grants@trusthorses.org. One of the paramount factors in the Trust leadership’s analysis each year of the growing number of applications is need-based and means-tested applications. Please note these in your application.

All grant recipients must agree to expenditure responsibility disclosures. As part of those requirements, recipients will need to transmit a written summary of the activities that the grant funded within 45 days of expending the funds. That summary must also include a spreadsheet detailing how and to whom the funds were allocated. The expenditure responsibility requirements dictate as well that evidence be provided that the Trust’s grant allocation was made for its intended purpose. This requirement can be met in the form of photos from an event, testimonials from those assisted, or otherwise.
