Double Your Donation Through August 17
ACE is excited to be able to offer our first special giving opportunity of 2022! Starting today, all donations to Movement Grants will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $300,000, thanks to the estate of a compassionate legacy donor.
Movement Grants is ACE’s grantmaking program aimed at building and strengthening the global animal advocacy movement. Your donation to this matching challenge will be doubled to support our next round of grantees. We are interested in funding groups working on various approaches to animal advocacy, especially those that are underfunded, target large numbers of animals, and are in regions with a relatively small animal advocacy movement. Applications are accepted and the annual disbursement is determined by the review committee.
This matching challenge is made possible by Richard, a dedicated animal advocate. Knowing that he had a terminal disease, he created a charitable trust based on his core belief that every animal deserves a full life. This $300,000 is not part of a bequest, but rather a separate and independent pledge made by the trustee of his estate who is honoring Richard’s wish to “make sure that the most animals possible are helped by the funds.” ACE is grateful to accept this potential gift with the restriction that it be used as an incentive to encourage others to contribute to effective animal charities. For transparency, this particular donation to ACE would not be made otherwise, and we will only receive the exact amount in matching funds that we are able to raise during this special challenge.
We hope that you will help us reach our goal and support promising animal advocacy projects around the globe. Please join ACE in continuing Richard’s legacy of compassion. Thank you!
