Want to make a huge difference? Support some of the most effective charities in the world!
We recommend our Top Charities because our rigorous research indicates that they are probably the most effective in the world.
To help you support the most effective charities, Giving What We Can operates a charitable trust in the UK. By donating to the Giving What We Can Trust you can support more than one charity at once. Donations to the Giving What We Can Trust are eligible for Gift Aid. If you're not a UK donor, you should probably donate directly to your preferred charity using the links below.
All money donated to our Trust is used to support the work of our selected charities. You can express a preference about how your donation is applied — you can choose from among our Top Charities, as well as a number of other highly effective charities. If you're a UK taxpayer, you can also claim Gift Aid, making your donation up to 25% more effective!

If you don't pay tax in the United Kingdom, or you only want to donate to one of our Top Charities, you can donate directly through your preferred charity's website:
Giving What We Can recommends charities to donate to, but we also accept donations ourselves, to pay staff and operating costs. We think we're a highly effective charity, and it's likely that for every dollar we spend, we move around 60 additional dollars to some of the best charities in the world. You can read more on our impact page.
If you would like to make a donation to Giving What We Can, you need to make it through our parent organisation, the Centre for Effective Altruism. You can specify that you would like your donation restricted to Giving What We Can.
