ACE Designates DVA as 2021 Standout Charity

Dharma Voices for Animals (DVA) is honored to have been recommended as a “2021 Standout Charity” from Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE). ACE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered in the United States dedicated to finding and promoting the most effective ways to help animals. ACE aids compassionate donors, professionals, and volunteers in making informed decisions about how to help animals as effectively as possible. ACE strives to identify ways to alleviate suffering and improve the lives of animals on a wide scale, while continuously updating their recommendations based on new evidence. 

Here are some highlights from ACE’s review of DVA…

“DVA’s programs primarily focus on reducing the suffering of farmed animals, which we think is a high-priority cause area due to the large number of animals involved. Their work has potential to affect large numbers of animals given its global breadth.”

“Dharma Voices for Animals works with Buddhist communities in countries with relatively young and small animal advocacy movements, which we think is a promising avenue for pursuing large-scale change for farmed animals. We think DVA is well-positioned to contribute to the growth of the animal advocacy movement in these communities and countries.”

“We find DVA to be an excellent giving opportunity because of their strong programs aimed at increasing the availability of animal-free products and strengthening the animal advocacy movement in relatively neglected regions.”
