Handsel Foundation
P.O. Box 1322
Freeland, WA 98249

Funding Areas: The Handsel Foundation provides grants to organizations working to end

organizations with effective plans to reduce animal suffering through targeted spay/neuter
programs to address companion animal overpopulation. These projects will be given special
consideration, particularly for larger grants. The Handsel Foundation has also elected to
concentrate on providing grants to organizations that do not receive wide public support. We
are particularly interested in funding smaller animal welfare organizations and programs that
have the potential to be models for others working on behalf of companion animals.

From the website, June 2010: “For the foreseeable future, our first priority will be to help sustain the
operations of past recipients of Handsel Foundation grants. Our second priority will be to fund the
programs and projects of new grantees. To be more flexible during these hard economic times,
the Handsel Foundation will consider requests for operational support for organizations that
closely match our giving priorities.”
