Giving Green’s Top Recommendations

Giving Green is a guide to making more effective climate giving decisions. Giving Green helps you find evidence-based, cost-effective, and high-leverage organizations that maximize the impact of your climate donations.

There is an exciting plethora of climate initiatives that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but only some are based on the best available evidence. Supporting these highly effective initiatives is one of the most impactful climate actions individuals and businesses can take. Giving Green was created to help you find the organizations behind them.

Giving Green is a team of climate scientists, economists and impact evaluation experts with decades of experience working at the intersection of evidence-based policy and the environment. They spend thousands of hours reviewing the studies, crunching the numbers and interviewing the experts, so you don’t have to.

Giving Green publishes all of their team’s research and deliberations, so you can be confident that its recommendations are scientific, transparent and actionable. Giving Green’s research is funded entirely by generous donors. If you’ve found their work helpful, please consider donating to Giving Green to support their research, alongside their top-recommended nonprofits.

Giving What We Can does not take any fees from donors using our platform or from charities listed on our platform. We are independently funded to promote our mission of making giving effectively and significantly a cultural norm. Read more on our transparency page.
