VegFund empowers vegan advocates worldwide through grant funding and supporting effective outreach that inspires people to choose and maintain a vegan lifestyle.
Vegfests and other public festivals and celebrations are a growing international phenomenon fueled by the energy of vegan activists. These plant-powered events draw veg and non-veg enthusiasts alike for exposure to vegan foods and lifestyle choices.
A VegFund grant may reimburse you for the cost of a space at a public festival, street fair, or other public venue to hold a vegfest. VegFund encourages event organizers to find venues that are easily accessible to the public. If you’re renting a booth at a large event, VegFund will reimburse those fees as well. VegFund may reimburse you for the cost of a virtual classroom license for virtual events (example: Zoom). VegFund will cover the cost of purchasing and printing literature. VegFund will consider covering marketing expenses aimed at increasing the attendance for a given project. These expenses may include social media ads (example: Facebook) and flyers or radio advertisements. Grants are awarded retroactively/as event reimbursements.
