Charitable Grant Applications

Charitable Grant applications will be accepted until March 15, 2017.

Since 2004, the net proceeds from our annual Sandy Paws event have been distributed to Greyhound adoption groups and other animal welfare organizations. Over $162,000 has been granted to Greyhound Guardian charities.

We've donated to many Greyhound adoption groups, the Jacksonville  Humane Society and several other animal welfare organizations. However, due to budget restraints, we are no longer able to help non greyhound groups. Thank you for your understanding. We thank the Jekyll Island community for supporting Sandy Paws.

Recipients of our grants must be a non-profit group 501(c)3.  You will find a grant request in our Sandy Paws program and we will require proof of your 501(c)3 status.

We are proud that we have always been able to fulfill each and every grant request submitted to us.   Our Board of Directors review the grant applications and determines the amount distributed each year.  We have raised over $129,600 in the last 12 years and look forward to many more years and a lot more money to give away.  Thank you for your support of Greythound Guardians and Sandy Paws-Greyt Fun in the Sun!
