Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $10,000,000 over two years to the Good Food Institute (GFI) for general support, including its work promoting plant-based alternatives to animal products. Our Farm Animal Welfare team has been particularly impressed with GFI’s public policy work relating to plant-based products.

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

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $4,000,000 over two years to the Good Food Institute (GFI) to support its international work. GFI promotes alternatives to animal products. This funding will support GFI’s international expansion of its mission to create a sustainable, healthy, and just global food system.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a renewal grant of $1,500,000 to The Good Food Institute (GFI) for general support.

We previously supported GFI with a $1,000,000 grant recommendation in 2016. Our Program Officer for Farm Animal Welfare, Lewis Bollard, considers GFI to be the leading nonprofit promoting alternatives to industrial farmed animal products and has been particularly impressed with its strategic support (for example, providing branding guidance, facilitating venture capital connections, conducting market research, and consulting on media rollout plans) for early-stage companies producing plant-based products, such as Good Dot and Good Catch. GFI has also achieved growing influence as a think tank and resource provider. GFI expects to use much of this new funding for programmatic expansion by hiring new staff.

This grant falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
