About this list
This list represents charities that we evaluated as part of our recommendation process. We have categorized each charity based on their type of work and status.
It is important to note that the small number of highly recommended organizations below is the result of a deliberate decision to provide clear and actionable recommendations to donors who are seeking to find the highest impact uses for their donations. We believe that many more of the animal organizations we considered also do excellent work on behalf of animals.
For a more comprehensive list of charities we’ve considered over the years, see our Evaluation Process Archive.
