Animal Welfare: ACE's Recommended Charity Fund
Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) has a proven track record of finding excellent giving opportunities in the animal protection movement. Each year, ACE does a broad search of charities, selects those that seem likely to be most effective, asks them to participate in a comprehensive evaluation, and then publishes a list of Top and Standout Charities supported by in-depth reviews. Their Top Charities work in ways that are most likely to produce the greatest gains for animals, actively evaluate and improve their programs, and have a demonstrated need for more funding. Their Standout Charities are also vetted as strong giving opportunities who for one reason or another fell short of the Top Charity recommendation. ACE’s Recommended Charity Fund distributes donations between their Top and Standout Charities, keeping a close eye on each charity’s room for more funding and the expected value of marginal donations.
