Animal Charity Evaluators




Organization Type

USA: 501(c)3

Mission Statement

Our mission is to find and promote the most effective ways to help animals. To do this, we analyze research on methods of helping animals in order to provide information about interventions and Top Charity recommendations. We offer advice for effective animal advocacy and provide career, charity, and volunteering suggestions. Additionally, we work with other organizations to help them conduct their own research.

Based on our current findings and available research, advocating for farmed animals seems to be the most effective way to help animals and prevent the largest amount of suffering. Over eight billion land farmed animals (and 78 billion sea animals) are killed each year for the United States food supply. Research shows that, on average, a single person going vegetarian spares the suffering of 252 animals. Even modest reductions in consumption of animal products can make a large difference when applied on a large scale. Whereas other animal causes can cost tens or even hundreds of dollars per animal saved, convincing people to reduce or eliminate animal products can save many animals at a fraction of the cost. This is why our Top Charities are generally farmed animal advocacy groups.

Ultimately, our vision is a world in which no individual is given less than full moral consideration on the basis of any morally irrelevant feature of their identity, including species membership.

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
