Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) Recommended Charity Fund supports the highest-value funding opportunities among its recommended charities, which are those that have the greatest impact helping animals per dollar.
Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) is dedicated to finding and promoting the most effective ways to help animals. Through evidence-based research, it assists generous donors, compassionate volunteers, and dedicated advocates in making informed decisions on how to help as many animals as possible.
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.
Its disbursements are determined by ACE’s research team. For more information about how donations are allocated, see the list of past recipients and frequently asked questions on the ACE website.
The Giving What We Can research team looked into ACE as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations, and decided to not currently rely on their charity recommendations. However, we still expect choosing ACE recommended programs to be significantly more impactful than choosing animal welfare programs without an impact-focused evaluation behind them, and we remain open to (some of) ACE's recommendations being among the most cost-effective donation opportunities in animal welfare.
