Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) recently launched an application for our Charity Evaluations program. Every year, we invite approximately 15 promising charities to participate in our evaluation process. To select this group of charities, we consider organizations around the world and assess whether they seem likely to do exceptional, cost-effective work to assist animals and, thus, become one of our Recommended Charities. To increase the chances of selecting and inviting the most effective organizations to our evaluation process, we will now use an application

Application content

The application form is divided into two phases. Phase 1 consists of questions about the organization’s basic details and eligibility. To meet the eligibility requirements to participate in our 2024 charity evaluations, charities must:

  • Primarily work to help farmed animals and/or wild animals
  • Not be in an exploratory or testing phase where there is significant uncertainty about which of the charity’s programs will be scaled up
  • Have been an organization for at least three years
  • Have at least three paid full-time equivalents (including full-time, part-time, and contractors)
  • Have an annual expenditure of more than $100,000 USD
  • Not work or be based in a country that is comprehensively sanctioned by the U.S. (see list here)
  • Be able to gather and send all documents required for ACE to distribute funds to the organization, either directly or through the use of a fiscal sponsor

Only organizations that meet our eligibility criteria will continue to Phase 2, which includes more in-depth questions to gain a better understanding of the organizations’ type of work. In this phase, we expect to understand charities’ programs in terms of the interventions they use, the animals they help, and the countries they work in. We also expect to better understand charities’ strategic thinking on how their activities create positive change for animals in the short and long term.

We invite all organizations interested in being considered for our 2024 charity evaluations to submit an application. We are accepting applications from April 1 through April 30, 2024.

If you have any questions about the application form or the charity evaluation process, please contact our Charity Evaluations Manager, Vince Mak.
