This page was reviewed but not written by the grant investigator. ACTAsia staff also reviewed this page prior to publication.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $300,000 over two years to ACTAsia to support research and reporting on the fur industry, fashion forums to discuss alternatives to fur, and corporate outreach to obtain fur-free pledges from retailers.

This follows our March 2018 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
