Frequently Asked Question

How do you keep track of whether I follow through on my commitment?


Each year, Giving What We Can carries out a review of our members' donations. As part of this, we request that members record their donations and annual income (and wealth if applicable) using our Pledge Dashboard.

This reporting is optional, but the information it provides is very useful:

  • It allows us to track the proportion of members who follow through on their giving pledge, showing us whether the commitment we encourage is realistic and is working.
  • It allows us to quantify the impact that we have had on the charities we recommend, by comparing the amount people have donated with the amount they would have donated had they not joined Giving What We Can.

If you would prefer not to provide this information in any given year, please let us know, with a confirmation of whether you have kept to your pledge.
