What is The Pledge?


The Giving What We Can Pledge is a public commitment to donate at least 10% of your lifetime income to the most effective charities in the world, with an option to also increase your pledge by including wealth when calculating your pledge amount.

In addition to The Giving What We Can Pledge, we have three other giving pledges:

  • The Trial Pledge: Donate at least 1% of your income for any period you choose
  • The Further Pledge: Donate all of your income above a specified living allowance
  • The Company Pledge: Donate at least 10% of your company’s profits
