VegFund empowers vegan advocates worldwide through grant funding and supporting effective outreach that inspires people to choose and maintain a vegan lifestyle.
VegFund sponsors one-time events such as conferences and classes that strive to deepen the vegan knowledge base and educate others about plant-based diets and vegan living. Host a conference or panel discussion, teach a course, develop and market a webinar, or create a shareable tool such as a video or pamphlet to educate the public about plant-based living or promote veganism!
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 or to host a speaker. 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.
