Frequently Asked Question

How do I upgrade my existing pledge to include wealth?


As of November 2023, people can choose to include a percentage of their wealth as part of their pledge. Pledgers who choose to do this will donate the greater figure of either their pledged income or wealth over a given period (most often a tax year or calendar year).

Adding an optional wealth component to The Giving What We Can Pledge allows those who have significant wealth to give in a way that better reflects their resources, aligning with our overall mission of helping people from all walks of life meaningfully commit to using a portion of their financial resources to help others.

If you would like to include wealth in your existing pledge, please submit a Pledge Variation Form and we’ll update your pledge in our systems.
