Giving

Take a giving pledge

We invite you to join our community of 9,017 people who have taken a pledge to donate a portion of their income to highly effective causes.

If you're not quite ready to pledge, why not start by making one donation to an effective charity?

Create a fundraising page

Start fundraising for high-impact charities amongst your friends, family or colleagues. The GWWC team will help set up a custom page for you.

Make a bequest

Donating money from your estate to effective charities could help you to leave behind an incredible legacy. Leaving a gift in your will to charity is typically called a bequest, but can also be known as planned giving.

Community

Join our online community

We have a community slack workspace designed to help you connect with others interested in effective giving, so you can self-organise meetups, ask questions and much more!

Join a local Giving What We Can group

Giving What We Can has just re-launched local GWWC groups in select cities! Local groups are a wonderful way to connect with people who share similar values and interests.

Attend one of our events

We run regular events (mostly online) where you can meet people in the Giving What We Can community from around the world, hear what's going on, discuss effective giving, and more.

Advocacy

Spread the word

Help us spread the word about giving more and giving more effectively. Talking to friends or family about these topics may be one of the best ways to help; advocating for effective giving multiplies your impact!

Share our ideas

Share your commitment with our advocacy assets

Host a giving event

Giving games, everyday philanthropist events, and pledge celebrations are fantastic ways to get more involved -- and to get people talking and learning about effective giving in a fun, engaging, and interactive way. And if you're affiliated with a school, be sure to take a look at charity elections!

Volunteer

Many of our members do a lot of good by giving their spare time and skills. This is also a great way to meet other members and increase your engagement with our community.

Use our new volunteering tool to see what kinds of volunteer opportunities are available.
