Should I donate to PETA Australia?
Do not donate.
PETA Australia does not demonstrate basic indicators of trustworthiness or effectiveness. We cannot verify that donations are used to deliver on their mission.
We cannot verify that PETA Australia is trustworthy. While they present an audited financial report, in the last year they reported both a net deficit and net liabilities without an explanation for this position. Adding to that they do not demonstrate basic features of a quality charity, that is: they do not outline how they prevent the misuse of funds or disclose the executives running the charity.
We cannot verify that PETA Australia is effective. While they present some positive attributes: they describe activities they have delivered, and some of the results of these activities, we were unable to identify evidence that they evaluate the effectiveness of their work. Evaluations are necessary to understand if their work has the intended benefit.
In order to improve our recommendation, we recommend they address the following:
provide an explanation for their financial position
clarify individuals and positions on the charity's executive team
verify how the charity prevents the misuse of funds
highlight how they evaluate the effectiveness of their work.
