Our Grantees Have Inspired Millions of People
In 2019, we celebrated our 10th year supporting advocates in the vegan movement. We’ve funded thousands of outreach activities so far, and our grantees have inspired millions of people to choose a vegan lifestyle. In July, we hosted VegFund’s 10th “birthday party,” a networking event at the 2019 Animal Right Conference where we recognized some of our remarkable grantees and celebrated with vegan cake.

Now, we have our eyes on the next ten years. VegFund looks forward to supporting thousands more grantees as they reach millions more people and make the world better for animals, the environment, and human health.
However, we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to acknowledge what we’ve accomplished in collaboration with our grantees so far. In the last decade, we’ve supported more than 3,000 grantees in 76 countries. We’ve contributed $12.6 million in grant funding toward 7,270 events, including film screenings, festivals and fairs, paid-per-view (PPV), learning events, online campaigns, and many forms of innovative outreach. In fact, our grantees have shared 1.2 million vegan food samples and reached more than 15 million people with a vegan message.
What’s next for VegFund?
More and more vegan communities identify with plant-based health and environmental sustainability values as well as animal rights. In the next decade, we will continue to support all three components of the movement toward a vegan world.
