ACE currently recommends Albert Schweitzer Foundation, Animal Equality, The Good Food Institute, and The Humane League. All four organizations have strong track records in evaluating their own tactics and making changes based on what seems most effective.
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.
Certain animal charities can help many more animals with your donation than others can. We have explored charities’ wide range of efficiencies by comparing the effects of a $1,000 donation to a companion animal shelter with a donation of the same amount to an ACE Top Charity.
Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) is proud to offer convenient methods of donating to our top charities as well as ACE. 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. 100% of the Fund supports ACE’s recommended charities, and its disbursement will be determined by ACE’s research team.
The Effective Animal Advocacy Fund is for anyone who wants to maximize the impact of their donation. Contributions to this fund will be distributed to Top Charities, Standout Charities, other promising charities or programs that our research indicates will do the most possible good at the time of distribution, and/or ACE’s own research.
