Founders Pledge empowers entrepreneurs to do immense good by conducting rigorous charity research and advising its members on how to maximise their impact through strategic philanthropy.
Founders Pledge is a global community of entrepreneurs committed to finding and funding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. On joining, every member makes a legally binding pledge to commit a chosen portion of their personal wealth to charity. This sends a powerful signal to the startup ecosystem: impactful giving should be the norm, not the exception.
Founders Pledge champions evidence-led and thoughtful approaches to impact. It equips members with charity research, streamlined giving infrastructure, and a global network of experts to learn from — empowering them to bring their resources to the global problem-solving table.
Specifically, Founders Pledge provides:
As of 2022, Founders Pledge reports that since launching in 2015, its community has collectively pledged over $8 billion to social causes, with over $890 million already donated to high-impact charities. Spanning 37 countries and over 1,700 members, its membership includes the people behind industry-leading companies such as DeepMind, Skype, Spotify, Uber, and Planet.
We previously relied on Founders Pledge’s research to inform our charity recommendations. However, we’ve since decided to base our recommendations on our new evaluators research. While we expect to soon look into Founders Pledge as part of this more in-depth evaluator research, we haven’t yet.
