Applicants must consistently demonstrate a positive reputation with their stakeholders and community, as well as contribute to Thrive Philanthropy’s positive reputation.

It is important to note that the Thrive Seed Grant does not fund cellular agriculture work, projects or organizations that benefit or support the exploitation of animals, for-profit companies (including restaurants and other businesses), food banks or giveaways, animal farming or other animal use, political parties or candidate endorsements, tuition or student research, or work within the United States or international chapters of USA organizations.
