About the Program 

Pawsitive Impact Logo Clear.pngThe Prince William SPCA has launched a program that aligns our mission with the work of creative young individuals seeking to make a difference in the lives of companion animals. The “Pawsitive” Impact Program provides resources and funding up to $500 for student-led, student-run proposals that will make a positive social change for animals in our community.

The program is open to K-12 youth working either in a group or as individuals. Focus will be on companion animal projects. The funding aims to support projects as part of service awards for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4-H groups, Honor Societies, etc. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts earning the highest awards in their organizations are encouraged to apply. Winning projects should make a substantial impact on companion animals in the community. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis by a committee appointed by the Prince William SPCA. Funding is limited and not all proposals will receive financial support.

Who is eligible to apply:

Individuals or groups in grades K-12 falling under a service group such as scouts, 4-H, honor society, student council, etc.  Must be officially affiliated with an organization and have a designated advisor or leader.  Funding will not be awarded to individuals unaffiliated with a service group.  Applicants must live or attend school in Prince William County, Manassas or Manassas Park, Virginia. Checks will be made out to the organization listed on this application.  No checks will be made out to individuals.
