The People's Fund

The People’s Fund is a grant program that aims to advance Mercy For Animals’ work to create a just and sustainable food system, build people power to accelerate change, and achieve racial equity in funding across our movement.

We believe in a community-led, power-democratized, decision-transparent, and resource-collective grantmaking process.

Our Values


We strive for transparency to build trust and nurture reciprocal relationships with all program participants and donors.


We believe BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) advocates deserve equitable access to the resources needed to achieve impact for farmed animals, BIPOC communities, and the planet.


We are committed to active listening, challenging the status quo, and cultivating a collaborative growth practice among program participants, donors, and ourselves.
