RC Forward: Animal Welfare Fund

Rethink Charity supports high-impact charities around the world. Donations going to our funds will be allocated to evidence-based charities. These charities have been recommended by Animal Charity Evaluators so you know that your donation is making a big impact.

Some of the best Animal Welfare charities focus on reducing the impact of factory farming. That's because the atrocious conditions that these animals endure, and the large numbers of animals affected mean the scale of this problem exceeds that of any other human-caused animal suffering.

Currently, the Animal Welfare Fund allocates donations to the following charities based on recommendations from charity evaluators:

-Animal Equality International (exposes factory farming)
-The Humane League (grassroots education initiatives)
-Good Food Inistitute (supports animal product food alternatives)

Our goal is to guide giving with reason and evidence, so you don't have to guess which charities will do the most good. We support many different kinds of charities, all unified by one thing: evidence showing they're among the best in the world. See for more information.


IMPORTANT: If you start your own campaign, anyone can give and be issued a tax receipt, but please make sure donors to your campaign know that these receipts are only valid for Canadian taxpayers.


RC Forward (teamed up with the Chimp Foundation) is giving Canadian donors the opportunity to make tax deductible donations to high-impact charities in and outside of Canada. Donate to our other funds or to specific charities by visiting
