The Albert Schweitzer Foundation (ASF) is a German nonprofit that works to improve farmed animal welfare standards through litigation, corporate outreach, and corporate campaigns.


ASF was founded in 2000,[1] with Albert Schweitzer's fundamental maxim of "reverence for life" as their guiding philosophy, and a focus on "the single greatest source of pain and death for animals: the use of animals and animal products as a food source."[2] 


ASF is recommended by Founders Pledge as "one of the most cost-effective animal advocacy organisations in the world."[3] As of July 2022, ASF has received over $6 million in funding from Open Philanthropy.[4]
