ACE's 2021 Top Charities are: Faunalytics, The Humane League, and Wild Animal Initiative. All three organizations have strong track records in evaluating their own tactics and making changes based on what seems most effective, and are what we believe to be the best animal charities to support at this time.
Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) works to find and promote the most effective ways to help animals. This post explains why ACE considers wild animal welfare to be a promising cause area despite its lower tractability compared to farmed animal welfare.
Spending on animal advocacy is highly inconsistent with the areas where animals are affected most. Based on USDA reports, where possible, we have analyzed the numbers of animals used or killed in factory farming, lab testing, clothing industries, and animal shelters.
Volunteering is a great way to help animals—especially for those who don't work professionally in a field relevant to the cause and/or don't have extra money to donate. Just as it's important for donors to support charities that make the most of their financial contributions, volunteers should think of how to make the greatest impact for animals by working with effective animal charities.
Animal Charity Evaluators is proud to offer convenient methods of donating to our Top Charities, Recommended Charity Fund, as well as ACE and ACE Movement Grants. We can help you customize your giving plans to ensure that you are doing the most possible good for animals.
The Recommended Charity Fund is for anyone who wishes to support ACE’s recommended charities through a single donation, simplifying the process so that you can easily give to effective animal charities.
ACE Movement Grants (formerly "Effective Animal Advocacy Fund") is for anyone who is interested in making the animal advocacy movement more effective. Contributions to this fund will be distributed to a number of promising charities around the world.
