The Jim Cronin Memorial Fund Equipment Grant

The Jim Cronin Memorial Fund Specialist Equipment Grant is awarded to relevant organisations who require specialist equipment which will benefit primates in their care or primates scheduled to be released. The charity has access to specialised equipment, experienced primate specialists and provides funding to ensure that relevant organisations are able to receive the support, and equipment they need in order to complete projects for the benefit of the primates in their care or those scheduled for release. Equipment Grants are awarded to relevant organisations who can clearly demonstrate the benefits to the primates and caregivers and the Grant also acts as a memorial to the life and achievements of Jim Cronin MBE.
