The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of €530,000 ($625,400 at the time of conversion) over two years to Eurogroup for Animals to support EU advocacy work for chicken welfare. Eurogroup for Animals plans to use these funds on either broiler chicken or egg-laying hen welfare campaigns, depending upon which campaign appears most tractable.

This grant falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare, and is one of several other recent grants made to strengthen the farm animal welfare movement in Europe.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.
