Want to make a huge difference? Support some of the most effective charities in the world!
We recommend our Top Charities because 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.
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're not a UK donor, you can donate directly to your preferred charity or see our information about tax efficient donations in your country.
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.
If you've got any questions, or you need some assistance making a donation, we're more than happy to help out! Please get in touch via our contact page, and we'll respond as quickly as possible.
