Chappy & Friends has a vision of igniting thousands of grassroots groups that rise up to respond to the abuse and suffering of animals of all stripes and colors across the US. Think of us as an “incubator” for animal welfare projects! We help those on the front lines of animal welfare to come into existence, to grow, and to sustain themselves.
Chappy & Friends is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization benefiting the animal kingdom by letting you focus on your animal welfare project. As an umbrella organization, we will assist you or your organization to qualify under Section 501(c)(3) to solicit and receive deductible contributions from donors. If your project is selected to become part of the Chappy & Friends family, we’ll also assist you with the ins-and-outs of qualifying with grant makers and, if you desire, assist you with grant writing services at no cost. We encourage all of our Chappy & Friends projects to dream big. We are confident that we can provide the road map for achieving your goals on behalf of animals across the United States.
Chappy & Friends believes in empowering those helping the voiceless across the animal kingdom. We believe that all animals should have a safe environment in which to fulfill their varied purposes in this world. Too often, animals are treated as soulless creatures with no regard for their ability to feel pain, rejection, and suffering. Too often, they are left open to physical or mental abuse or are unable to receive the care or treatment they so desperately need.
Chappy & Friends seeks to free those on the front lines of animal welfare activities from the mundane, everyday administrative and time-consuming tasks of running their own 501(c)(3) (tasks such as paperwork, IRS reporting, and board management). Thereby, we allow them to focus on their respective lifesaving, life-protecting, and life-enhancing activities.
