Chappy & Friends ignites grassroots animal welfare projects by “lending” our tax-exempt status to the projects for THEIR fundraising purposes. Think of us as an “incubator” for those seeking to impact the animal kingdom in positive ways. We help people and groups working on the front lines of animal welfare to come into existence as a Chappy & Friends’ project. With our assistance, you’ll have the freedom to grow and to sustain your project. This allows you to focus on what you do best, help animals! Officially, Chappy & Friends is a nationwide 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor for animal welfare projects.
Focus on what you do best: Help Animals! Leave the rest to us.
Chappy & Friends helps projects by effectively lending our 501c3 status to non-exempt organizations and individuals. This allows you to offer tax benefits to your donors and to apply for grants. You get all of this access to funding without the burden of running your own 501c3. This gives you the freedom to focus on what you do best: saving, advocating for, and/or enhancing the lives of animals!
You too can take advantage of the large community of passionate donors and empathetic grant makers that care deeply about animals and their struggles. Use us for one project (like building a fenced-in sanctuary for feral cats), on your way to your own 501c3, or if you like what we provide and want to stay for good, you are welcome to do so!
