Farmed Animal Funders (FAF) is not a grantmaking organization. We are a decentralized funding collaborative, aimed at expediting the end of factory farming through collaboration and shared learning. FAF staff provide individualized advice and research to our members. Each member of Farmed Animal Funders maintains full autonomy over their own philanthropy.
Mikaela Saccoccio is the Executive Director of Farmed Animal Funders. Previously, she worked as a Donor Relations Manager at The Humane League, where she matched donors with their passion to end factory farming, and at West End House Boys & Girls Club, where she organized the annual gala. She holds a BA from the College of William & Mary.
Lori Falcon is a lifelong animal advocate and the Operations Generalist at Farmed Animal Funders. Driven by her love for animals, she worked in operational roles in the veterinary field for many years. Most recently, she worked as a Client Success Associate at a cybersecurity firm. Through her work at FAF, she aims to help create a more equitable world for all species.
