Seed Funding Grants

We offer up to $1,000 USD in seed funding for effective animal rights activism! We seek individual and grassroots groups whose primary purpose is to help reduce suffering for non-human farmed animals.

Before applying, make sure you meet these qualifications:

Step 1

Your primary goal should focus on reducing farmed animal suffering. Factory farming causes over 100 billion animals to suffer deprivation, fear, and pain every year.

Step 1

You must have prior activism experience, whether in animal rights or other social movements. We're looking for people who have worked on and contributed to grassroots campaigns and/or projects, in a paid or volunteer capacity.

Don't meet the qualifications above? You may still be eligible for funding! Apply and we'll forward your application to other potential funders.

If you meet the qualifications, fill out the application form below.

Our grant program is generously funded by The Pollination Project (TPP). After reviewing and approving your application, we forward your application to TPP for further review, so keep an eye out on your inbox!

If your primary focus does not address farmed animals, you may still be eligible for a grant directly from TPP. We encourage you to apply through their website.

Section C - Budget

Your project's budget is a very important part of your application. Our team often uses this information to support their final decisions. Keep in mind that the budget items you list are ones that will serve to complete your proposed project, so be very specific in how the requested funding will be used.
Please note, all information in this section should be given in US Dollars (US$).
I confirm that I have a bank or PayPal account that is in my name or my organization's name and that can receive grant payments in US Dollars. I confirm my understanding that - with the exception of my fiscal sponsor, if applicable - TPP is unable to make grant payments to any other person or entity on my behalf. I understand that if TPP reviews my proposal and decides to make an offer of funding, that offer is conditional on the ability to accept funds to an account in my name or in my organization's name.
