The Facts About Poverty
Extreme poverty in the developing world causes great suffering, but we can each make a huge difference, by giving more and giving to the most effective charities. At Giving What We Can, we help you to make the biggest difference, by:
Finding the Best Charities
By giving to the most effective causes, you can do far more to help those in poverty: some charities are 1000 times more effective than others. At Giving What We Can, we conduct independent research aimed at identifying the very best charities. Currently, our recommended charities are Against Malaria Foundation, Deworm the World, Schistosomiasis Control Initiative and Project Healthy Children. Learn more about our recommended charities, charity evaluation, and our research methodology.
The members of Giving What We Can each pledge to donate 10% of their income to the most effective causes. Giving more is easier than most people expect, and easier still when you’re part of a global community of givers, united by the vision of a world without poverty. Learn more about our members, the pledge to give, and what you can achieve by joining Giving What We Can.
