Frequently Asked Question

How can I be sure my donation will be used effectively?


At Giving What We Can, we only recommend charities for which we have good reasons to believe they can do a lot of good with the resources they have. Read our Research & Approach page to find out how we choose which charities to include on our donation platform.

Our recommended charities work on high-impact cause areas and have been evaluated to be highly effective by trusted charity evaluators and grantmakers. We conduct due dilligence on all charities added to our donation platform.

In addition, many of the charities we recommend are highly transparent, which means they provide a lot of information about how they use donations. This allows donors to see how their money is being used and to make an informed decision about whether they want to continue supporting the charity.
