In Their Own Words

GiveWell is a nonprofit dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities and publishing the full details of analysis to help donors decide where to give. Unlike charity evaluators that focus solely on financials, assessing administrative or fundraising costs, Givewell conducts in-depth research aiming to determine how much good a given program accomplishes per dollar spent. They focus on the few charities that stand out most in order to find and confidently recommend high-impact giving opportunities.
