Animal Charity Evaluators: Movement Grants Program

 Deadline Date: March 17, 2024

 Donor Name: Animal Charity Evaluators

 Grant Size: Not Available

The Animal Charity Evaluators is currently accepting applications for the Movement Grants Program to build and strengthen the global animal advocacy movement.

The Animal Charity Evaluators is 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.

Since launching the Movement Grants program in 2018, they 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.

What types of projects are you interested in funding?

  • Movement Grants is particularly interested in funding organizations or projects that focus on:
    • Regions where animals are farmed in large numbers but that currently receive very little funding for animal advocacy, particularly in Asia, Africa, and Latin America
    • Animal groups that are farmed in large numbers but are relatively underfunded, including chickens, many species of fish, shrimp, and other invertebrates.
    • Advancing wild animal welfare.
    • Novel approaches to animal advocacy, either entirely new approaches or adapted to specific contexts and species. Where this is the case, they encourage groups to share learnings and best practices, and in doing so, contribute to collective knowledge for the movement.
    • Capacity building within the animal advocacy movement, such as building connections with other movements or developing the skills of animal advocates.
    • Institutional or systemic change rather than individual change, such as institutional, legal, or corporate outreach.
    • Support for earlier-stage groups and projects, similar to those funded in recent rounds.
