Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $910,000 over two years to Rethink Priorities to support farm animal research. This funding is intended to help Rethink Priorities continue to produce research on potential and existing interventions, including analyzing public support for various types of reform and producing survey results that inform future farm animal welfare policy proposals. We believe more high-quality research in this area would help us and other farm animal welfare funders compare future opportunities.

This follows our March 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
