ACE currently recommends The Humane League (THL), Mercy For Animals (MFA), and Animal Equality as our top charities. All three organizations have strong track records in evaluating their own tactics and making changes based on what seems most effective. THL focuses on a blend of local and online grassroots outreach and evaluative efforts, whereas MFA primarily works on undercover investigations and online outreach. Animal Equality spends time advocating in grassroots outreach, undercover investigations, and online activism. All three organizations perform especially well on our detailed criteria.

ACE acknowledges the Farm Animal Protection Campaign of the Humane Society of the United States (FAPC), Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM), Vegan Outreach (VO), New Harvest, Faunalytics, The Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP), Animals Australia, Animal Ethics, and Albert Schweitzer Foundation as standout organizations. This means that we think they are potentially high impact based on our criteria, but that for various reasons they did not warrant a spot as one of our top charities.
