About this organization






GiveWell is a nonprofit dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities and publishing the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give. Unlike charity evaluators that focus solely on financials, assessing administrative or fundraising costs, we conduct in-depth research aiming to determine how much good a given program accomplishes (in terms of lives saved, lives improved, etc.) per dollar spent. Rather than trying to rate as many charities as possible, GiveWell focuses on the few charities that stand out most in order to find and confidently recommend high-impact giving opportunities.


Published new reports on five programs. Further developed our cost-effectiveness model to account for counterfactual disease burden, long-term effects, and spillover effects. Published updates on all nine existing top charities and removed one from the list. Published updates on seven existing standout charities and added Zusha! To our list of standout charities. More than $140 million in donations were made to our recommendations. Of those recommendations, more than $15 million went to GiveWell incubation grants to support the development of future GiveWell top charities.
