Doneer Effectief (Dutch for "donate effectively") is a nonprofit, independent donation platform that makes effective giving accessible in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Many charities operate on a local or national level to improve communities. In the wake of major global disasters, other charities make strong appeals for our donations and generosity.
Doneer Effectief considers a different approach towards charitable giving, for three reasons:
Doneer Effectief informs donors about the best charities and makes it easy to donate to those charities. It focuses on charities that work in the areas of climate, global poverty and health, and animal welfare.
Doneer Effectief includes charities on its donation platform that:
It charges no fees and also provides independent and tailored advice through its helpdesk.
Doneer Effectief meets our criteria to be a top-rated charity because one of our trusted evaluators, Founders Pledge, has conducted an extensive evaluation highlighting its cost-effectiveness as part of its report on Giving Multipliers. (Our trusted evaluators are charitable giving experts who focus on impact — their research into the best charities means your donations can do even more good. Learn more about charity evaluators we trust and why.)
Run only by volunteers, more than €1 million has been donated over two years to the effective charities included on the platform (according to data provided to Doneer Effectief by the recipient charities).
Your donations through our portal are tax deductible in the UK, US, and the Netherlands. Giving What We Can does not take any fees from donors using our platform or from charities listed on our platform. We are independently funded to promote our mission of making giving effectively and significantly a cultural norm. Read more on our transparency page.
