You can make twice the difference by donating to Animal Ethics now

16 Dec 2023

You now have the opportunity to double the impact of your gift to Animal Ethics! For a limited time until January 7, 2024, every dollar you donate will be matched 100%, doubling your contribution to further support animals in need. Any donation during this period will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000. So a $5 donation becomes $10 for Animal Ethics, $100 becomes $200, and so on, thanks to the matching funds.

Why is this important?

Animal Ethics works in highly neglected yet crucially important areas in animal advocacy, including wild animal suffering, transforming speciesist attitudes, and raising concern about animals in the future, all with a longtermist approach. We work in movement building in ways that benefit animal advocacy as a whole.

The work you can make possible

In 2023, we expanded our presence internationally. In addition to being active in the US and Europe (in the UK, Spain, Switzerland, Spain, and Portugal), we have reached many other places. We gave talks and attended conferences in numerous Asian countries (India, Nepal, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia). We also participated in events organized in Latin America (including Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Bolivia, and Chile). You can read more about our activities this year on our website.

We have also published many more materials. We now have more than 240 videos on our different YouTube channels, not including shorts. The videos have been viewed more than 189,000 times. Our website is now available in 11 languages, and including all languages, it contains close to 2,000 pages. We intend to continue reaching new languages and countries, though how much we can do depends on whether people like you support our work.

As for research, we regularly publish pieces about ways to help wild animals. This year, the Journal of Wildlife Diseases published a study funded by Animal Ethics that examined causes of harm to wild animals in Canada. In addition, a new paper was published countering objections to helping wild animals based on a survey conducted by Animal Ethics, involving natural science scholars and students to gauge opinions on different ways to help wild animals. We also published a literature review about how to help wild animals through contraception.

In addition, we do meta work reaching other activists in many countries. We have participated in advocacy forums in the US, Europe, and Asia. We pay special attention to countries that are typically neglected: we have been working on programs educating high school teachers, scholars, and students in universities in Latin America and the Spanish-speaking world.

Be twice as effective

If you want to make a change for animals and are concerned with being effective with your donation, this is a great chance!

Animal Ethics is unique in that we are longtermist. Our focus on having the greatest possible impact over the long term makes it difficult for us to get funded. Most donors want to see an immediate impact from their donations. But someone needs to work to attain a dramatic change for animals in the future. Animal Ethics is doing that, and your support is crucial.

Consider doubling your impact by donating to Animal Ethics. You can donate by credit card, check, or PayPal. Contact Animal Ethics if you have any questions or want to donate in another way.

Donations are tax-deductible in the USA (and Spain) as Animal Ethics is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
