Grant Program

We believe that giving grants to small and local animal welfare organizations is vital to our work and advancing the collective goals of the animal welfare community.  We support mission-aligned nonprofit organizations and programs worldwide that protect and preserve Asian Wildlife.

Asia Wild provides two types of grants: 1) Grants to partners (organizations that have received previous financial support and are pre-approved by the Board of Directors) and 2) Grants to non-partner organizations that apply for financial support during the grant application period and are selected based on their project application

  • Protecting and Preserving Animal Welfare in Asia
