Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling €1,408,000 (approximately $1,642,046 at the time of conversion) over two years to L214 to support fundraising, professionalization, investigations, and broiler welfare advocacy in France. Since our November 2017 support, L214 has secured broiler welfare and cage-free commitments from a number of major French supermarket chains and companies. This funding is intended to support additional welfare campaigns, investigations, and fundraising.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
