Doneer Effectief

Doneer Effectief

Cause area: Multiple cause areas

Doneer Effectief (Dutch for "donate effectively") is a nonprofit, independent donation platform that makes effective giving accessible in the Netherlands and Belgium.

What problem is Doneer Effectief working on?

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:

  1. Prevention is better than cure. This also applies to disasters and climate damage.
  2. You can achieve much more elsewhere in the world than you can locally or nationally with the same monetary donation.
  3. Choices should be based on scientific research, not on marketing.

What does Doneer Effectief do?

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:

  • Have been proven to be effective based on sound scientific research.
  • Are cost-effective.
  • Have growth potential and can make efficient and effective use of new donations.
  • Are transparent about their approaches and results in the short and long term.

It charges no fees and also provides independent and tailored advice through its helpdesk.

Why is Doneer Effectief one of our top-rated charities?

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).

At Giving What We Can, we focus on the effectiveness of an organisation’s work, which considers much more than just the administration costs of the organisation. Learn more about this common “overhead myth” and our approach to charity evaluation.
