Established in 1966 the BEVA Trust is the philanthropic arm of BEVA that provides opportunities, support and funding to allow veterinary professionals to volunteer for projects that seek to enhance equine welfare both locally and globally, in partnership with other organisations.
All projects that the BEVA Trust support should meet the following criteria:
- meet an existing need for veterinary support to welfare organisations, and deliver a meaningfully positive impact to horse welfare, either directly or indirectly
- appeal sufficiently to generate veterinary volunteers
- are safe
- have the potential to create positive public relations for all stakeholders
- are relatively cheap to run and deliver a good rate of return on the financial administrative and volunteer support inputted
