- To support new cage-free corporate campaign costs of the HSUS' Farm Animal Protection Campaign.
The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $500,000 to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to support its campaigns for corporate cage-free egg reforms.
The Humane Society of the United States is an animal advocacy organization that engages in a variety of activities, including campaigning for food-industry corporations to end the use of cages to confine egg-laying hens. We believe that corporate cage-free campaigns are a particularly effective method for reducing animal suffering, and that the Humane Society of the United States has played an important role in the success of many of these campaigns in the past. We think it is likely that the effectiveness of these campaigns will scale reasonably well.
