What is the Community Grants Fund?

The Community Grants Fund is available to all IVC Evidensia veterinary teams as an option if they’re looking to raise money for a local charity. As soon as the application has been successful, their charitable efforts will be topped up by £1000, which is available once per year as a grant.

Since it launched back in December 2021, the Community Grants Fund has supported upwards of 140 charities and non-profit organisations round the world, ensuring that IVC Evidensia can continue to engage in local areas and be a positive influence beyond helping pets in the wider community. 

With the help of the Community Grants Fund, vet professionals working within IVC Evidensia practices can not only make a difference when it comes to animal welfare in their local area, but also to the local or national charities that mean the most to them, raising money for the homeless, mental health organisations and much more.

Community Grants Fund Case Study: Snowdon Endurance Challenge

Kes Taylor, a Senior Vet from Cibyn Vet Clinic who was raising money for charity, set herself the challenge of walking up Snowdon as many times as she could within 72 hours. 

It took many energy drinks, several ice baths and a few power naps to manage it 14 times, all in the name of raising money for the Search and Rescue Dog Association in Wales (SARDA). As part of IVC Evidensia, her total was also topped up by the Community Grants Fund, which provided an additional £1000.
