Rex and Nellie Jackson Foundation: Grants for Animals and Wildlife

OVERVIEW: The Rex and Nellie Jackson Foundation predominately supports domesticated animal organizations.

IP TAKE: This foundation tends to award general operating support or general purpose grants.

PROFILE: The Rex and Nellie Jackson Foundation is a small non-profit located in Peoria, Illinois. The foundation does not operate a website, does not have a formal staff, and maintains a practically non-existent public profile. However, the Jackson Foundation invests in animal and wildlife organizations across the United States.

According to the foundation’s latest tax filings, past animal and wildlife related grantees include Friends of Strays, Dogs on Deployment, and the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation. While the foundation does not state explicit geographic restrictions in its grantmaking, it appears that gives funding priority to organizations located in its home state of Illinois.

Grants are on the more modest size, often ranging from $1,000 to $15,000. The Rex and Nellie Jackson Foundation does not currently accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
