Doneer Effectief (Dutch for "donate effectively") is a nonprofit, independent donation platform that makes effective giving accessible in the Netherlands and Belgium.
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:
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:
It charges no fees and also provides independent and tailored advice through its helpdesk.
We previously included Doneer Effectief as one of our recommended charities based on Founders Pledge’s evaluation highlighting the cost-effectiveness of Giving Multipliers. We’ve since updated our recommendations to reflect only organisations recommended by evaluators we’ve looked into as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations; as such, we don't currently include Doneer Effectief as one of our recommended programs but you can still donate to it via our donation platform.
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).
