Animal Charity Evaluators Recommendations

Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) finds and promotes effective animal charities using evidence-based research. You can support ACE Top Charities by giving to the Animal Welfare Fund or support all of their recommended charities and/or promising advocacy projects by giving to one of ACE’s funds. You can also support ACE’s operations directly.

Top Charities

Albert Schweitzer Foundation

The Albert Schweitzer Foundation advocates for farmed animals and promotes a vegan lifestyle. Donations support corporate campaigns, efficient lawsuits, their international expansion and traditional animal welfare campaigns which are used as interim steps on the path towards more progressive topics.

Wild Animal Initiative

Wild Animal Initiative is a non-profit organization that strives to understand and improve the lives of wild animals. Because that will only be possible through sound science, the team at Wild Animal Initiative supports pioneering research into responsible ways to reduce animal suffering in the wild.

The Good Food Institute

The Good Food Institute (GFI) is dedicated to creating a healthy, humane and sustainable food supply. By working with scientists, entrepreneurs and investors, GFI is developing ideas to tackle poverty, climate change and animal welfare through the promotion of plant-based and clean meat, dairy, and eggs.

The Humane League

The Humane League works to reduce as much animal suffering as possible, as effectively as possible. Donations support hard-hitting corporate campaigns, which reform the way farm animals are treated, as well as education programs that inspire consumers to make more compassionate food choices.
