We've admired the work of VegFund for a while now. If you haven't heard of them, they'e a terrific organization that empowers vegan activists worldwide by funding and supporting outreach activities that inspire people to choose a vegan lifestyle. I know of several people who've held vegan outreach events and been reimbursed for their vegan food expenses from VegFund.
I didn't know about their Merit Awards, though. They provide Merit Awards to individuals and small organizations who have demonstrated consistent and effective vegan advocacy and are involved in current or proposed projects that are in need of funding. A friend sent me the link, we applied, and voila! We got one to help us bring Vegucated to the public. Thank you, VegFund!
