- To support campaigning against the use of gestation crates for pigs.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $70,350 to Crate-Free Illinois to support campaigning against the use of gestation crates for pigs. There are approximately 6 million sows in the United States, at least three-quarters of which are routinely confined in gestation crates.
This follows Open Philanthropy's August 2019 support and falls within its focus area of farm animal welfare.
