Recipient Selection in Progress for the CCF Animal Awareness Grants

September 24, 2021

For the seventh year in a row, CCF is issuing grants to selected animal shelters in need of financial assistance. So far, we’ve had an amazing amount of nominations of rescues and shelters that mean something to you. Instead of having a submission deadline this year, we’ve decided to distribute $500 grants on a “rolling” basis until we’ve donated a total of $10,000. We received the most enthusiastic response yet; and grant nominees/winners will be announced soon. And you can be sure that if the organization you nominated was selected, we will definitely let you know. 

As a reminder, Associates who are enrolled in Casual for a Cause, which provides important support to the CCF General Fund, get preferential consideration for grant nominations, special pricing for tickets and events and maybe even an occasional surprise. If you would like to support CCF by joining the program and making a small donation each pay period, here’s how to sign up.
