Applications are open for the Vegan Society Grant to support small to medium sized grassroots not-for-profit projects that encourage people to go vegan and stay vegan.
The Vegan Society is particularly looking to fund new or innovative projects.
Recently awarded grants went to ‘Radio programs to encourage non-vegans to go vegan and stay vegan in Sengerema district, Tanzania’, and ‘Culture and Tradition, a call to animal welfare’, which was a community run project to encourage fellow villagers to replace animal skins with synthetic materials in traditional dance festivals in Zimbabwe. In the UK a project titled ‘Enjoy Soy’ worked to provide vegan culinary training to newly independent young adults.
- A typical award is £1000 which is granted to projects that meet the criteria and are selected by the cross-department panel.
- They are looking for projects that:
- Raise public awareness of veganism in a positive way
- Promote veganism in a unique or exciting way to non-vegans
