We hope to develop an honest and open relationship with the public, which in turn provides a productive atmosphere for sharing information about effective techniques to help animals. We value organizations that are open about failures as well as successes, that provide financial information online, and that are willing to publish the facts from their field showing detail and individual efforts. We strive to be one of these organizations ourselves.
We are committed to transparency, and are pleased to share our financial reports. Find out about our revenue and expenses by year as well as the donations that we have moved to our recommended charities.
The ACE Board meets every six weeks. For anyone interested in our development as an organization, we post board meeting minutes on this page as they become available.
We periodically undertake internal evaluations of our organization's programs and conduct a culture survey with our staff. This helps us identify what's working well as well as where we can improve.
Find our bylaws, donation policies, conflict of interest policy, and social media policy, and link to other relevant parts of our website.
See ACE staff and board affiliations with current or past recommended charities and charities we may review per our Conflict of Interest Policy and our Charity Evaluation Committee Policy.
We realize that we are not perfect in our work, and, as is the case with any organization, we sometimes make mistakes. Here we disclose our past activities and showcase how our thoughts and research have developed over time.
