The Open Philanthropy Project recommended two grants totaling $1,000,000 to Compassion in World Farming (Compassion) to support its “End the Cage Age” campaign in the UK and Europe. The campaign will seek to end the use of cages and crates for all farmed animal species in the UK and Europe through advocacy and outreach, including an EU-wide citizens’ ballot measure. Our funds will support staffing needs related to the campaign in six regional EU offices as well as its headquarters in the United Kingdom; marketing, social media, and exhibition activities; advocacy work; investigations; as well as technical and operational costs over the next two years.
These grants fall within our focus area of farm animal welfare, and are among several other recent grants made to strengthen the farm animal welfare movement in Europe.
