Review from Guidestar

I have been both a donor and volunteer for FARM for over 3 years. They do more with the funds they get and their small staff than any other nonprofit I know, and I've been involved and researched nonprofit organizations for over 16 years. It is imperative and fortunate that such an organization exists to advocate for the over 10 billion farmed animals raised in a life of misery and slaughtered for food in this country each year. 97-98 % of people say they are against cruelty to animals, yet most of them eat and use animal products. FARM is educating people about the connection.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

With just their national Animal Rights Conference alone, which is a huge undertaking, over 1,000 animal advocates and people concerned about animals attend to learn, network, and empower themselves.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The organization can do so very much more if they had additional funds and staff. Their budget is 1% or less of the other animal activist organizations like HSUS, ASPCA, PETA, etc., ....... less than 1%!

FARM (Farm Animal Rights Movement) is a remarkably effective and well respected animal rights organization. Alex Hershaft, the founder of FARM, and every other staff member are truly dedicated and passionate about saving farm animals, protecting the environment and improving health through vegan advocacy. Since FARM's formation in 1976, they have established multiple successful campaigns including the Great American Meatout, World Farm Animals Day, CHOICE School Lunch, Vegan Earth Day, Gentle Thanksgiving, FARM Underground, among others, as well as their annual Animal Rights National Conference. FARM's campaigns have increased public awareness of farm animal cruelty and motivated people to adopt a plant-based diet. 95% of all FARM's contributions go directly to fund their programs (with only a 5% total overhead) ranking them as having one of the most effective use of budget compared to all national animal rights organizations. FARM has my confident, loyal support.

I am a proud supporter of FARM USA because of their exemplary outreach efforts and dedication to animal rights. Their annual Meatout day is an occasion which generates mainstream interest in veganism and I know many people who have changed their eating habits as a result. I appreciate the work that they do.

I've been vegan since 1997. I've read a lot of books on animal rights/veganism; participated in and organized numerous protests (back in the day); and have become familiar with many of the animal rights organizations. Since 1996, it has been my opinion that FARM is the Number One, BEST animal rights organization there is. Why? 1-They know that more animals die for food than any other cause, so they work to save the most animals in the way that makes the most sense: Try to get people to stop eating animals and animal products; 2-They use their budget wisely; 3-They use positive messages & images to help animals; 4-They now are also working to specifically address some younger folks; 5-They know what they're doing and they do a fantastic job working to save animals.

They get it! How do you save the most animals? You get people to stop eating them! That is how the most animals die and they know the ways to help end this.

Every time I have a tabling with FARM literature, it is an extremely rewarding experience. Sometimes, I am able to offer vegan food samples or show graphic video of standard farming practices of animals being routinely tortured on factory farms and in slaughterhouses. The youth is the most receptive to these issues but anyone is capable of being transformed during this outreach. Very often, people are moved to tears and seeking alternatives to their Standard American Diet (SAD). FARM is generous in providing lots of resources of recipes, medical information, and environmental statistics free of charge. They send out a weekly email recipe to anyone who signs up. I love vegetarian outreach because it addresses so many issues, including global hunger.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their continous dissemination of the latest information with regard to our food choices.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely knowledgeable and courteous. No pressure to donate or to volunteer, they are simply generous with the materials that anyone would need to make a difference in our world.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do the following: 1. Solve our healthcare crisis. 2. Stop Climate Change. 3. Make global hunger and thing of the past. 4. Give ALL animals the right to be free. 5. Bring about world peace.

For many years, I've worked with Alex Hershaft, FARM's founder, as well as with various staff people, both in presenting at the annual Animal Rights Conference FARM puts on every years, and also participating in some of their annual campaigns, such as the annual Great American Meat-Out. I feel that for a relatively small organization with a relatively small budget, FARM is able to effectively promote the vegan message of compassion for all life better than virtually any other organization, even those that are much larger.

I am a vegan and have dedicated my life to animal rescue,teaching and helping people choose the vegan life style,writting letters to congress and companies that harm animals.I also do a clean up project where we take kids and clean up the beach then they are invited back to the house for some vegan treats (carrot sticks,air pop popcorn, celery sticks etc...) and we watch an animal movie our first one we watched Babe it was a big hit and are planning our next one in a couple weeks.I just enjoy helping animals so much.I get so much happiness helping and teaching people and kids about being a vegan and to respect and help all animals.

I love Farm ,They give out great reading material. They are very helpful if you need anything or have any questions they help so much.When I first became a vegan in 2007 they were my first group i contacted and have been my favorite one since.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just try to get out there more.More billboards maybe commercials.This all takes alot of money though

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They are so friendly and knowledgeable.I love doing any thing I can for them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

awesome.They do what they do for the love of animals not a pay check.I try to model myself from them

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save animals every where. No more animal testing,no more endangered animals. Animals could live happy lives and not worry about using there skin for a coat or there bodies for someones dinner

Ways to make it better...

I feel they do a great job no complaints

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money and ignorance.People dont want to give up cash for animals they would rather buy a wallet then save a cow. People dont want to watch the videos and read the booklets because they feel guilty but you have to see the injustice and pain to change

One thing I'd also say is that...

Please choose a vegan life.Animals feel pain just like people.You can eat well where nice clothes with out leather&fur;and use products that dont test on animals,and live a happy healthy life.
