We’ve Exceeded Our Goal
Thank you to everyone who donated during our matching challenge. Grants will be distributed to ACE’s Top Charities and Standout Charities in January to support their efforts to reduce animal suffering.
Double Your Donation by December 31
As we enter the final month of 2021, ACE is excited to be able to offer a special year-end giving opportunity! Starting today, all donations to our Recommended Charity Fund will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $300,000, thanks to the estate of a generous legacy donor. This is your chance to double your donation to help animals.
Recommended Charity Fund
ACE’s Recommended Charity Fund is distributed biannually (January and July) to our effective Top Charities and Standout Charities. Your donation to this matching challenge will be doubled to support our 2021 recommended charities, which were announced last week. From developing next-gen animal-free materials and conducting research to inform effective advocacy, to promoting plant-based diets and securing corporate animal welfare commitments, these organizations are working around the globe to reduce the suffering of farmed and wild animals. Your generosity now will fuel their impactful programs in 2022.
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 the important work of our effective Top and Standout Charities. Please join ACE in continuing Richard’s legacy of compassion.
