Published: October 2016

The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $1,000,000 over two years to Humane Society International to support its work to end the confinement of hens in battery cages.

Earlier in 2016, we made a series of grants to support corporate cage-free campaigns and wrote on our blog about why we see this as a promising strategy to promote farm animal welfare. The present funding, part of a new series of grants focusing on international cage-free advocacy, will support Humane Society International’s work in Latin America and Asia.1

We do not plan to write in more detail about this grant at this time.
