The Board has agreed that once a year, in January, it will consider applications for support from organizations not listed among our African and Asian programs.

Please note that The Board of Save the Rhino International Inc. will retain 5% of all unsolicited donations to help cover the annual costs of running SRI Inc. If a donor wishes to nominate a particular beneficiary program, the Board will consider that request, so long as it is listed above.

The Board meets quarterly (in January, April, July and October) to consider donations received during the last three months and grant applications or reports from field programs. Grants are then made as soon as practicable.

To apply for a grant, please email cathy@savetherhino.org with a short letter of inquiry in the first instance.
