GiveWell's All Grants Fund supports the full range of GiveWell’s grantmaking to high-impact opportunities, including at organisations outside of its top charities.
The All Grants Fund supports the full range of GiveWell’s grantmaking to high-impact programs working to improve global health and wellbeing.
GiveWell recommends the All Grants Fund for donors who want to contribute to the full range of its grantmaking. Donations to the All Grants Fund may be allocated to any grant that meets GiveWell's cost-effectiveness bar, including funding opportunities outside its top charities. This fund makes grants on a rolling basis, and is a good fit for donors who are open to multiple pathways to impact, including ones that are higher-risk.
The goal of GiveWell’s discretionary grantmaking is to support the highest-impact giving opportunities it identifies. Some grants have the goal of incubating or scaling newer programs that may become future top charities, based on GiveWell’s top charity criteria. Other grants promote policy change, fund research that may lead to much more cost-effective grant allocations in the future, or support other potentially high-impact, cost-effective initiatives consistent with GiveWell's mission to maximise global wellbeing.
See the Fund webpage for more information about how donations are allocated, past recipients, and plans for the future.
We investigated the impact-focused charity evaluator GiveWell as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations and concluded that GiveWell’s recommendations and grantmaking approach are well-suited to helping donors maximise the impact of their “dollar” in the global health and wellbeing space.
