Giving What We Can Groups

Giving What We Can Groups are your local community

Our mission is to create a cultural norm of giving effectively and significantly — and we believe that communities, both global and local, are key to creating that cultural shift.

GWWC groups are local or virtual groups of community members who connect over a desire to do good effectively through giving. As part of a group, you might: discuss how to give effectively, fundraise for effective charities, and spend time with people with similar values. We’re also excited to see groups sharing resources, opportunities, and advice with one another and their broader community.

Our groups are aimed at growing a larger community of people who care about doing good effectively through giving. They are open to anyone who is interested in using their resources to help others, and we actively encourage new attendees, and for existing members to bring friends along.

You might find your local groups hosting:

  • Speaker events
  • Local dinners
  • Pledge celebrations

We hope if you attend an event with a local GWWC group that you walk away feeling inspired, motivated, and warm after having connected with some of the kindest, most generous people around.
