David van Beveren serves as the Grant Manager at Craigslist, and President & Founder of Vegan Hacktivists. He established Vegan Hacktivists in 2019 with the objective of addressing technology and data shortcomings in the animal protection movement, and has since supported over 250 organizations with free tech, data and consulting services.
As Grant Manager at Craigslist he facilitates granting several millions worth of funding towards vegan and plant-based initiatives— with an emphasis towards transforming the food system and combating factory farming. Prior to that, David led a software firm serving U.S. K-12 and higher education institutions that included UCLA, Princeton, and Duke University.
David's passion for technology, branding, capacity building, and meta fundraising, is only matched by his love for reading, watching anime, and playing the handpan.
If you're involved in any form of animal advocacy, please don't hesitate to contact me— I'd be happy to provide assistance whether it relates to technology, branding or fundraising.
