Nonprofit Animal Shelter Grants

Funding for this grant process is made possible through The Lillian and Henry A. Konopacke Fund. The Fund was created in 2013 at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven by bequest of New Haven native and North Haven resident Henry Konopacke, who worked as a machinist at the Winchester Repeating Arms Factory. 

The Fund’s intent is to assist nonprofit animal shelters in the Greater New Haven area in performing the services for which they have been established.  

Available Grant Types

  • Grants for new or existing projects
  • Grants for short-term financial capacity building assistance to strengthen the infrastructure of an organization for long term success.
    • Examples include board development, strategic planning, evaluation and capital expenditures in equipment, technology, building renovations or relocation.
