Our Movement Grants program aims to build and strengthen the global animal advocacy movement. We are interested in funding groups working on various approaches to helping animals, especially those that use novel interventions, target large numbers of animals, and are in underrepresented regions. Supporting a wide variety of organizations will help provide new evidence about what interventions work best.
In June and July, donations we receive to our Movement Grants program will be distributed to multiple promising projects and organizations around the globe, as decided by a review committee consisting of ACE team members. Five of the 11 charities we currently recommend through our Charity Evaluations program are previous Movement Grant recipients.
Since launching the Movement Grants program in 2018, we have organized seven funding rounds, received over 800 applications, and awarded 178 grants to groups in over 40 countries, totaling $5.28 million in disbursed grants. Read through the questions below for more information on applying for Movement Grants.
Please note that a grant received by an individual person may be considered taxable income. Individuals working outside the U.S. are asked to collaborate with a fiscal sponsor or reach out to Movement Grants Manager, Eleanor McAree, to discuss options for funding.
