Here are some things you can do to make a significant positive impact in the world.
We invite you to join our community of 7,427 people who have taken a pledge to donate a portion of their income to highly effective causes.
If you're not quite ready to pledge, why not start by making one donation to an effective charity?
We run regular events (mostly online) where you can meet people in the Giving What We Can community from around the world, hear what's going on, discuss effective giving, and more.

Giving What We Can helped establish the effective altruism community, which now has groups all over the world. These groups discuss topics and work on projects related to effective giving, high-impact career choice, and more. They can be a great place to meet Giving What We Can members and other people interested in doing good better.
Help us spread the word about giving more and giving more effectively. Talking to friends or family about these topics may be one of the best ways to help; advocating for effective giving multiplies your impact!
Our blog features the latest news from our community, updates on charity evaluations, member stories, and helpful information on effective giving.
Many of our members do a lot of good by giving their spare time and skills. This is also a great way to meet other members and increase your engagement with our community.
Donating money from your estate to effective charities could help you to leave behind an incredible legacy.
Leaving a gift in your will to charity is typically called a bequest, but can also be known as planned giving.
