Woodshouse Foundation: Grants for Animals and Wildlife

OVERVIEW: The Woodshouse Foundation supports organizations protecting animals and wildlife.

IP TAKE: This funder does not award a large number of grants each year; however, the majority of its awards are unrestricted. Unfortunately, the foundation lacks transparency, which restricts information about its grantmaking strategies, application, and areas of interest.

PROFILE: Established in 1992, the Woodshouse Foundation is a small non-profit that does not employ a formal staff or operate a website. It is based in Greenwich, Connecticut. According to the foundation’s tax filings, its areas of grantmaking suggest an interest in animals and wildlife, the environment and education.

Woodshouse’s grants related to animals and wildlife often range from $5,000 to $25,000. Past grantees include Animal Watch (Animal Help Now) which received a grant for its wildlife emergency response work; and the Animal Legal Defense Fund, which received a grant for its work helping to stop animal cruelty.

The Woodshouse Foundation does not appear to impose geographic restrictions on its grantmaking. The foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
