The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 to Soko Tierschutz to conduct and publicize investigations at factory farms in Germany and Eastern Europe. This funding will enable Soko Tierschutz to hire an investigator and cover all of their costs for multiple investigations over the course of one year. We believe these investigations will support the corporate and policy advocacy of other animal welfare groups.

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