Support The People’s Fund

I wanted to get involved with The People’s Fund not only to generate additional support for my project but also to become part of a community committed to uplifting the perspectives, ideas, and voices of those who have traditionally been marginalized within animal protection spaces.

Dana McPhall, Beyond Humane Education

The People’s Fund grant process isn’t about control and meeting strict guidelines, which could go against the integrity of our movement. The People’s Fund centers recipients’ experience and knowledge with trust and freedom, replacing systems of domination in movement making with systems of trust, guidance, and support.

Join our work to shift power in our sector.

We depend on your active participation to transform the culture of philanthropy and build a more just and equitable farmed animal protection movement.

Support Our Grantees

The People’s Fund aims to be a platform and an amplifier for our grantees, not a gatekeeper to funding. We understand, however, that for many funders supporting grantees through The People’s Fund can be a stepping stone to building relationships that lead to future direct funding.

Whenever possible, we encourage funders to donate to grantees directly rather than through our program. We welcome the opportunity to facilitate direct giving to our grantees, so please reach out to us if you would like an introduction.
