Effective Giving Organizations

Effective Giving is a small group of major philanthropists and impact investors. We source many of our ideas from the effective altruism community.

Effective Giving collaborates and is inspired by a number of organizations that are internationally active in the field of effective giving.




EffectiveAltruism.org is about answering one simple question: how can we use our resources to help others the most? Rather than just doing what feels right, it uses evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on. But it’s no use answering the question unless you act on it. Effective altruism is about following through.





Giving What We Can is a community of effective givers. It inspires people to donate significantly and as effectively as possible. They share information on how and where to give, help people stick to their commitment and stand together to create a culture of giving more, and more effectively.





Philanthropy Impact works with advisors, philanthropists, charities and governments to develop greater expertise, awareness and impact in philanthropic action. They provide resources, bespoke events and platforms to support the development of the philanthropy sector.



Open Philanthropy Project


The Open Philanthropy Project’s mission is to give as effectively as they can and share their findings openly so that anyone can build on their work. Through research and grantmaking, they hope to learn how to make philanthropy go especially far in terms of improving lives.



80,000 Hours


The 80,000 Hours’ mission is to help everyone in the world have a big social impact in their career. Right now, they are focusing on giving advice to talented and ambitious graduates in their twenties.



 The Copenhagen Consensus Center is a think tank that researches and publishes the smartest solutions to the world’s biggest problems. Their studies are conducted by more than 300 economists from internationally renowned institutions, including seven Nobel Laureates, to advise policymakers and philanthropists how to achieve the best results with their limited resources.
