Giving What We Can
‘Giving What We Can’ is a foundation that promotes effective international charities that use evidence-based interventions to help as many people as possible with the money they have. (charities such as the against malaria foundation that GWWC has figured out saves the most lives per pound)
GWWC has introduced a scheme to encourage people to promise a percentage of their future incomes to charity. GWWC recognises that many people plan to give to charity when they earn but somehow never get round to it or put it off, thinking they will when they earn more. By pledging a percentage right from the beginning, giving to charity can be included in budgeting and it is much more rewarding to the person as they can carefully chose charities to support through their lifetime. On their website, people can ‘pledge’ 10% of their future income or ‘try giving’ a smaller amount for a set number of years.
