What are Movement Grants, and how do they work?
Movement Grants is our grant program aimed at building and strengthening the global animal advocacy movement. We are interested in funding groups working on various approaches to animal advocacy, especially those that are underfunded, target large numbers of animals, and are in regions with a relatively small animal advocacy movement. We provide Movement Grants for three main reasons:
- We believe that a broad, pluralistic animal advocacy movement is more likely to be resilient—and hence more impactful—than a narrow, monistic animal advocacy movement.
- There is little available evidence to support the effectiveness of any given intervention, and we think that animal advocacy is more likely to be successful by continuing to fund a wide range of interventions.
- Many countries do not yet have a well-established animal advocacy movement—by funding projects in those countries, we can build up the movement in neglected regions and address animal suffering as a global problem.
Donations to Movement Grants will be distributed to promising projects around the globe working to reduce animal suffering. The annual disbursement will be determined by the review committee. Applications open in February each year.
