The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a contract with researchers Cynthia Schuck and Wladimir Alonso for $100,000 to continue development of a model for evaluating disability-adjusted life year impacts of animal welfare reforms. This funding follows our February 2018 pilot support, and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare. We expect to evaluate the merits of a longer renewal of our support in early 2019.

This was supported through a contractor agreement. While we do not typically publish pages for contractor agreements, we chose to write about this funding because we view it as conceptually similar to an ordinary grant.
