Animal Place’s Food for Thought Program offers several grant opportunities to help organizations adopt a vegan or vegetarian menu policy.

They offer $1,000 for a vegan menu policy or $250 for a vegetarian menu policy.
The Animal Welfare Fund aims to effectively improve the well-being of nonhuman animals by making grants that focus on one or more of the following: Relatively neglected geographic regions or groups of animals, promising research into animal advocacy or animal well-being, activities that could make it easier to help animals in the future, and otherwise best-in-class opportunities. The Fund focuses on projects that primarily address farmed animals, as well as projects that could affect other large populations of nonhuman animals.
The Awesome Foundation grants $1,000 every two months to an “awesome” vegan project through its Vegan Chapter.
Giant Steps Foundation (GSF) funds programs that promote plant-based diets and the humane care of farmed animals, shed light on current factory farming practices, and educate the public about the benefits of eliminating meat and dairy from our diets. They also provide support to nonprofit programs that benefit both animals and people in need such as those that offer assistance to low-income families with furry family members. GSF also has a special interest in solutions for the American wild horse and harp seals. GSF’s Greening Grants fund special events, allowing organizations to offer their guests organic, vegan, and more humane menus. Greening Grants also enable the use of recycled materials and plant-based inks used for event materials or catering.
