Election Candidate: Giving What We Can

Giving What We Can is making giving effectively and significantly a cultural norm - and raising a lot of funds for highly effective charities.

We're currently seeking funding to continue our work and ensure that we can inspire many more people to give effectively in the future. In 2024, we're hoping to hit 10,000 lifetime pledges.

If your goal is to get resources into the hands of highly- effective charities, we believe supporting Giving What We Can is a great funding opportunity. Here's the impact we have:

The monetary impact of GWWC is best documented in our most recent Impact Evaluation, which suggests that from 2020 to 2022:

  • GWWC generated an additional $62 million in value for highly-effective charities
  • GWWC had a giving multiplier of 30x, meaning that for each $1 spent on our operations, we generated $30 of value to highly-effective charities
  • Each new GWWC Pledge generates >$20,000 of value for highly-effective charities that would not have happened without GWWC.

The cultural impact of GWWC (although harder to quantify) has also been significant by making the idea of giving 10% accessible and compelling to a broader audience. “Pledging 10%” has become a touchstone of the effective giving community—inspiring TED talks, launching clubs, & drawing curiosity & praise from press around the world.
