Since its inception, TIFF has funded many research projects on feline health issues.
We are currently seeking donations to fund FIP research. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by September 1, 2015 in order to fund a $30,000 FIP research project. We already have $8,400 in donations for FIP Research. We are seeking an additional $10,000 from the general public and the cat fancy; TIFF will match up to $10,000 of those donations.
How does TIFF decide which research projects to fund?
For each grant award, the TIFF Awards Review Committee (comprising representatives from the veterinary community, education sector, and knowledgeable breeders from the cat fancy) evaluates that year’s proposals for scientific merit, value to cats, clinical relevancy, soundness of budget, and humane considerations to any cats involved in the project. After a thorough review of all proposals, the Committee ranks the proposals by merit and presents their recommendations to the TIFF Board of Directors.
