About

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 try to rate as many charities as possible, we focus on the few charities that stand out most (by our criteria) in order to find and confidently recommend high-impact giving opportunities (our list of top charities).

Against Malaria Foundation

Helen Keller International, Inc.

Helen Keller International is a global health organization dedicated to eliminating preventable vision loss, malnutrition, and diseases of poverty. Co-founded by Helen Keller—and guided by her fierce optimism and belief in human potential—the organization delivers life changing health solutions to vulnerable families in places where the need is great but access to care is limited. In the U.S., Africa, and Asia, Helen Keller’s proven, science-based programs empower people to create opportunities in their own lives and build lasting change.

Sightsavers International Inc

Mission Statement: Sightsavers' vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes, and where vision impaired people participate equally in society. New operations: Sightsavers has recently changed its operating presence in the United States so that we can operate more seamlessly with our global operations in over 30 countries. Sightsavers Inc. was newly incorporated in Missouri in November 2015 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit (EIN: 47-4657747), to which we have transferred all of our US institutional and individual fundraising operations. These activities formerly operated under Sightsavers International, Inc., a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in Delaware in 2000 (EIN: 31-1740776). Sightsavers International Inc. will continue to operate for the exclusive purpose of distributing the drug Mectizan® to treat the neglected tropical disease onchocerciasis (river blindness) in targeted African countries, through an in-kind drug donation from Merck & Co., Inc. that is valued at over $200 million annually. We will continue to include financial and program data of Sightsavers International, Inc. alongside that of Sightsavers Inc. in our publications and on platform profiles to provide the most transparent and comprehensive picture of Sightsavers activities in the US.

The END Fund

To control and eliminate the most prevalent neglected diseases.

GiveDirectly

GiveDirectly's mission is to reshape international giving, making unconditional, direct cash transfers to the poor the benchmark against which other interventions are evaluated. We believe the best way of achieving this mission is by maximizing cash delivered to the poor, with the ultimate aim of ending extreme poverty.
