The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $200,000 over two years to Rethink Priorities to support farm animal welfare research. This funding is intended to help Research Priorities produce research on potential and existing interventions like evaluating the efficacy of corporate campaigns and analyzing public support for various types of reform. We believe more high-quality research in this area would help us and other farm animal welfare funders compare future opportunities.

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