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 are underfunded, target large numbers of animals, and are in regions with a relatively small animal advocacy movement.
In June and July, donations to Movement Grants will be distributed to multiple promising projects and organizations around the globe, as decided by a review committee consisting of several ACE team members. Seven of the 15 charities we currently recommend through our Charity Evaluations program started out as Movement Grant recipients.
Since launching the Movement Grants program in 2018, we have organized six funding rounds, received over 600 applications, and awarded 178 grants to groups in over 30 countries. We accept applications for grants up to $50,000, and for this round, we are introducing a shorter application process for grants of $20,000 or less. Take a look at 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 Program Manager, Jamie Spurgeon, to discuss options for funding.
For examples of actions we do not support, see the “Policy Prohibitions” section of our Respect in the Workplace Policy.
