Compassion for all animals.
Why did Animal Rights Center Japan not receive our recommendation?
Animal Rights Center Japan’s work to improve animal welfare standards and increase engagement in animal advocacy is promising because it primarily focuses on animal groups, countries, and interventions that we consider high priority. We find their work on corporate outreach for farmed animal welfare improvements in Japan particularly likely to be impactful. For more information, see their Impact Potential spreadsheet. However, despite their impactful work, we estimate that additional funds would have more marginal impact going to our recommended charities. See 2023 Criteria Methods and Limitations for a detailed explanation of how we conduct evaluations and our 2023 Evaluation Process for information about our decision-making process. While ARCJ did not receive a recommendation from us this year, we recognize them as one of the most effective charities in their space.
Are Animal Rights Center Japan’s programs cost effective?
After analyzing the recent achievements and expenditures of Animal Rights Center Japan’s programs, we assessed their skill- and network-building achievements as particularly cost effective because they reached a high number of individuals compared to other achievements in the same intervention category. In contrast, we assessed Animal Rights Center Japan’s media outreach work as less cost effective because we had limited information about the quality and reach of the media outlets and generally assess media outreach as a lower-priority intervention. For more information, see Animal Rights Center Japan’s Cost-Effectiveness spreadsheet.
How is Animal Rights Center Japan’s organizational health?
Organizational factors can influence a charity’s effectiveness and stability. Based on our assessment, we are confident that Animal Rights Center Japan has the key policies and processes in place necessary for healthy workplace conditions, governance, and staff engagement. We also positively noted their effective use of volunteer networks and high level of volunteer engagement.
How much additional funding could they use?
We estimate that Animal Rights Center Japan has room for $200,000 of additional funding in 2024 and $400,000 in 2025, beyond their current projected revenues for those years. Therefore, we believe that they could effectively use a total revenue of up to $376,860 in 2024 and $582,262 in 2025. For more information, see their Room for More Funding spreadsheet.
