Your donation makes a difference

The importance of donating is greatly underestimated in the animal community. In our case, without our donors, we wouldn’t have been able to:

  • help build a movement of advocates committed to effectively reducing animal suffering
  • run ballot initiatives that reached hundreds of thousands of people through media coverage
  • write policy papers to inform legislators and the general public on important topics
  • publish and share content on effective advocacy strategies
  • organize talks and conferences
  • run workshops to help people find high-­impact careers
  • establish a research network to coordinate interdisciplinary research on important topics
  • start pursuing our own research on wild animal suffering

We rely on our supporters’ continued contributions to help us build on this work.
