The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $265,000 to Charity Science to support the creation of new animal welfare charities through their Charity Entrepreneurship project. Charity Science plans to use these funds to review potential farm animal welfare interventions and incubate 3-5 new animal welfare charities, including the development of first-year plans, a training program teaching key skills, and ongoing assistance to the founders. Charity Science hopes the new groups will be able to secure ongoing funding to continue operations beyond the incubation period.

This is a discretionary grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
