Prevent Cruelty California — “Yes on Prop 12” Campaign


Grant investigator: Lewis Bollard

This page was reviewed but not written by the grant investigator. Prevent Cruelty California representatives also reviewed this page prior to publication.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $4,000,000 to Prevent Cruelty California, a coalition of veterinarians, animal shelters, farmworkers, food safety groups, and animal protection charities advocating for Proposition 12. Prop 12, which will appear on California’s general election ballot this November, would require cage-free housing and improve space requirements in California for veal calves, pigs, and egg-laying hens, and would ensure that veal, pork, and eggs sold in California come from operations meeting these standards.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization to which we occasionally make funding recommendations and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
