2012 November 10 Interview EAA publishes an interview with Brian Tomasik, who spent several years writing essays about how to most effectively reduce suffering in the world. Tomasik recommends donating to Vegan Outreach and/or The Humane League.[5]
2012–2013 Donation Patrick Brinich-Langlois and Brian Tomasik are rated at the first position among EAA top donors.[6]
2013 April Staff EAA hires its first employee, Jon Bockman, as Executive Director.[7]
2013 November Reorganization EAA becomes an official 501(c) organization.[8]
2013 Year-round Reorganization Effective Animal Activism undergoes significant changes. Although its original focus is on creating discussion about tactics to help animals, this would shift towards an emphasis on creating quality educational and research content. Around this year EAA is rebranded as Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE).[1][9]
2014 April 4 Interview ACE publishes an interview with American animal activist Matt Ball, who co-founded and served as executive director of Vegan Outreach for over twenty years. In the interview, Ball expresses the thought that research will not play as significant a role in the future of animal advocacy as it could or should, because there are relatively few individuals who are truly motivated by maximum impact.[10]
2014 May Charity review ACE publishes its first review on Top Charity-ranked The Humane League (THL), a nonprofit which engages in a variety of programs that aim to persuade individuals and organizations to adopt behaviors that reduce farmed animal suffering. ACE recommends THL due to its "exceptionally strong commitment to using studies and systematic data collection to guide their approach to advocacy", and finds THL an excellent giving opportunity because of its strong programs and evidence-driven outlook.[11] ACE also publishes its first review on Mercy For Animals, which engages in a variety of farmed animal advocacy programs generally centered around their undercover investigations and subsequent videos of factory farms.[12]
2014 October 21 Interview ACE publishes an interview with American leading anthrozoologist Hal Herzog, author of the book Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It’s So Hard To Think Straight About Animals.[13]
2014 December Charity review ACE publishes its first review on a number of charities. Top Charity-ranked Animal Equality, an international organization which advocates for animals by conducting undercover investigations and promoting them through media outlets, is recommended by ACE which states AE does an exceptional job given their level of resources.[14] ACE also recommends Standout Charity-ranked Albert Schweitzer Foundation for being "extremely smart and strategic about their activities",[15] and Standout Charity-ranked Vegan Outreach, which is recognized for its long track record (over 10 years) of carrying out its leafleting program.[16] Assigning an "Exploratory" status, ACE publishes its first review on the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organizations.[17] Assigning a "Comprehensive" status, ACE publishes its first review on Compassion in World Farming USA (COMPASSION USA).[18]
2014 Program launch ACE begins to pilot a long-term social movement analysis project, with the goal to supplement its animal advocacy research by compiling information about other social movements.[19]
2014 December Charity review ACE publishes its first review on New Harvest, a 501(c) organization which funds academic research in cellular agriculture.[20]
2014 Donation Simon and Linda Knutsson are rated at the first position among top donors.[6]
2014 Year-round Financial ACE moves US$147,239 throughout the year (counting donations through its website as well as donations made elsewhere that donors reported as influenced by ACE).[21]

2015 May Evaluation ACE undertakes an internal evaluation of the organization. Findings are summarized, with some areas of high performance including strong leadership and high-functioning staff, good reputation in the effective altruism community, and early met goals; whereas some areas for improvement include need to continue fundraising, to move away from evaluating the same charities repeatedly, to increase evaluation of interventions, and to create a strategic marketing and outreach plan to help connect with the right target audience for their message.[23][24]
2015 June 2 Interview ACE publishes interview with Australian moral philosopher Peter Singer. In the interview, Singer states that we don’t really know how to prevent wild animal suffering, and argues that the likely ways of preventing wild animal suffering would lead to a confrontation with values that many environmentalists regard as no less important than the reduction of animal suffering.[25]
2015 December Charity review ACE publishes its first review on Standout Charity-ranked Nonhuman Rights Project, citing it as the only organization ACE knows of working directly towards attaining legal personhood and rights for nonhuman animals.[26] ACE also publishes its first review on Standout Charity-ranked Faunalytics, which works to connect animal advocates with information.[27] It also publishes its first review on Faunalytics.[28] Other charities ACE reviews for the first time include Animal Ethics[29], Compassion in World Farming International[30], and Centre for Animals and Social Justice[31].
2015 Donation Greenbaum Foundation, Thomas Mather, Martin Jacobson, and Jorge Lugo are rated at the first position among ACE's Top Donors.[6]

2016 April 14 Interview ACE publishes an interview with animal law and policy expert David Wolfson, who states in the interview: "Many aspects of industrial agriculture are truly scandalous and simply wrong by any person’s standards, from popular topic items like pink slime, to hormones and antibiotics, to government subsidies, to hiding the true cost of meat when considering the environmental effects, to the treatment of animals and of farm workers."[32]
2016 May 6 Interview ACE publishes an interview with award-winning investigative journalist Will Potter, whose book Green Is The New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege exposes how non-violent animal rights and environmental protesters came to be classified by the FBI as “eco-terrorists.”[33]
2016 July 25 Interview ACE publishes an interview with Canadian award-winning photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur, who documented the plight of animals on all seven continents for over a decade, and whose project We Animals became an internationally celebrated archive.[34]
2016 Fall Advocacy ACE creates an explainer video introducing the concept of effective altruism for animals.[32]
2016 October Advocacy ACE launches its Animal Advocacy Data Repository, which provides a hub for research data compiled from animal advocacy studies, so that researchers and advocates can continue to improve on previous efforts to understand the effectiveness of efforts to help animals.[32][35]
2016 November 12–13 Advocacy ACE, along with the Princeton University Center for Human Values, and the Princeton Animal Welfare Society, organize and co-sponsor the 2016 Effective Animal Advocacy Research Symposium, held at Princeton University. Researchers, professors and graduate students across various disciplines present projects with practical application to the animal advocacy movement, with particular emphasis on the social sciences. Presentations reveal cutting edge research as well as avenues for further research, highlighting areas of greatest research need. The event also provided an overview of effective altruism as it applies to animal advocacy, in addition to providing information on the state of the advocacy movement.[36]
