SoGive helps mid-level and major donors find the most cost-effective giving opportunities for the causes that matter to them. SoGive works with donors to clarify their values and moral priorities. Then, they combine cost-effectiveness analysis with a holistic evaluation of charities’ strategies to ensure that every gift makes a world-class impact.
Plenty of evaluators will give donors their top recommendations, but these recommendations are based on the evaluators’ subjective assumptions about moral weights and giving strategy. SoGive works with donors to make personalized recommendations, thus diversifying the strategies used to allocate funding to effective opportunities. SoGive helps donors’ unique voices and interests make a difference.
SoGive asks charities crucial questions about their impact, strategy, and decision-making, often uncovering important information about nuanced aspects of a charity’s work. And although SoGive’s research is donor-driven, SoGive publishes their most community-relevant findings on the EA Forum, so all effective donors can increase their impact.
SoGive’s research is funded entirely by generous donors. If you’ve found their work helpful and want to support them or commission a piece of research, please contact Spencer R. Ericson.
