VegFund is a nonprofit grant-making organization that provides more than $1 million in grant funds to thousands of activists around the world each year. VegFund’s mission is to support vegan activists through grant funding and capacity building to spread a vegan message and achieve a world free from harm to all animals.
Founded in 2009, VegFund recently launched a new website, new grant management system, and a new community forum, all in an effort to grow our grantee base while better understanding the impact of the work of our grantees.
Historically, VegFund’s grantees have been motivated primarily by concerns for animal rights. Increasingly, grantees are applying for support for advocacy activities relating to the human and environmental benefits of plant-based diets. Some advocates are addressing the links between vegan living, food access/food justice, and social inclusion. Volunteer activists, industry professionals, nonprofit organizations, and community groups represent the types of advocates supported by VegFund.
Currently, all organization employees work remotely. As such, the ideal candidate must be independently motivated and willing to work from home.
