While we believe The Giving What We Can Pledge is a good fit for most of the people reading this, clearly it will not be the right choice for everyone.
Some reasons it may not make sense to take the The Pledge at this point:
Taking the Pledge is not necessary to be part of the effective altruism community, and no one should feel pressured to join simply to feel that they are in good standing. We recognise the richness of ways that people contribute to this community and to the world, and that The Pledge represents only one of the many ways of taking significant personal action to benefit others.
