VegFund is recruiting for an experienced program officer to support the organization’s growing opportunities in grant-making worldwide to vegan advocates. New grant-management and client engagement platforms and a new website in early 2018 will enhance the organization’s ability to solicit and serve a growing number of grantees more efficiently and effectively. These new platforms will improve the organization’s ability to capture data on recruitment and retention and help VegFund better evaluate its grant-making performance. VegFund seeks a motivated and passionate program officer to spearhead a systematic and data-driven approach to its grant-making and grants management operations.

VegFund’s Grant Programs

VegFund supports the outreach of vegan advocates around the world to assist them in conveying information to the public about the societal and environmental benefits of compassionate vegan living. Operating as a grant-making nonprofit organization since 2009, VegFund has funded the public outreach efforts of thousands of grantees in more than 40 countries. VegFund currently issues approximately 600 grants annually across its six core program areas.

The most popular grants are:

  • food sampling of meat and dairy substitutes
  • screening of documentaries relating to animal rights, human health and wellness, and environmental and biodiversity protection
  • vegfests and other public festivals
  • “paid-to-view” videos where the viewer has a brief, visual immersion into the experience of animals used for food in the human industrial food system
  • Web-based video outreach and vegan challenge programs also make up a significant portion of  VegFund’s grant-making portfolio.
