Grants for Member Societies


Other Grants

Sabina Fund.
The rules are a little different to the IVU grants so you can try either - or both.

Vegetarian Charity
Grants for individual young vegetarians - under 26.

Please note: Grants are available to Member Societies only
see: How to Join IVU

Grants will not be awarded to individuals for their own purposes such as study, commercial ventures, travel etc. (see the Vegetarian Charity, right, for young individuals)

Please note that funds are inevitably limited and that priority will be given to projects in parts of the world where vegetarianism is less well established.

Applications for grants will be considered in batches at the end of March, June , September and December each year.
