Want to make a huge difference? Here are some ways you can do the most good with your donations and support some of the best charities in the world.

Effective Altruism Funds is designed to help individuals give as effectively as possible. It allows us to pool our money across the community into different funds so that together we can have a bigger impact. The four available funds cover areas that are important, tractable and neglected. Each fund is managed by an expert (including staff at GiveWell and the Open Philanthropy Project) so that you can be confident your money will go to the charities that will do the most good with it.

Giving What We Can's Top Charities

If you would like to donate to a specific charity rather than through the funds you can donate to our Top Charities. We recommend these because rigorous research by GiveWell indicates that they are some of the most effective charities in the world.

We currently believe that donating to Effective Altruism Funds is likely to be even higher impact but it does involve more risk and some members may prefer tried and tested top charities. If you have any questions about this please email as at funds@effectivealtruism.org.

Individual Charities

If you're not a UK donor, you can donate directly to your preferred charity or see our information about tax efficient donations in your country.

Please note: Deworm the World is run by Evidence Action. After you click through to their website, you should select 'Deworm the World' as the program you wish to support.

If you would like to support Giving What We Can, we recommend that you make a donation to our parent organisation, the Centre for Effective Altruism. Donations will be used to fund whatever activities CEA thinks are most in need of funding.
