Global High-Impact Fund

About

I believe some of the biggest problems in the world today to be related to the following areas. This fund is an ever evolving fund that selects the organizations I think can have the biggest impact in those areas. This fund is not charitable per se, it's not helping a specific group of people with rare medical conditions, in poverty, etc. but instead tries to select high-impact organizations that are advancing and protecting our race and planet, whose results will have to be judged in the longer term. - FOOD: we're eating WAY more meat than is sustainable. Eating meat and farming animals for their derivative products is the #1 cause of climate change, desertification, deforestation, pollution, poverty, etc. We're giving animals 3x the amount of food that we'd need to feed the whole planet. Completely nuts. - WOMEN: I strongly believe the lack of women and moms in the workforce, government and other power positions is one of the main causes for the violence and corruption that are present in this world. - FINANCE: Not a secret that finance is broken, but it might be the easiest to fix and the most impactful tool we have to help people around the world. - EDUCATION: Most of the world is uneducated, and most of it in the western world. Fundamentalism, religion and ignorance are cause for a lot of social problems and conflicts all over the world. - ENVIRONMENT: If we continue like this, we won't make it. --- I'll gladly consider suggestions about charities I might have missed at ste@bernardi.me. Thanks!

Samaschool

FINANCE: Samasource delivers enterprise digital services through a unique microwork model that harnesses the untapped potential of the world’s poor. The fastest way to have Africa emerge is to bring western jobs to the many talented young people in the continent.

Zidisha Inc.

FINANCE: People all around the world are denied the opportunity of becoming entrepreneurs. That means that whole countries are denied the opportunity of growing. A large number of new non-profits is starting to embrace the p2p microloan model, and I think Zidisha is the most interesting one. Zidisha is a Kiva-like model that doesn't use intermediaries and enables anyone to directly invest in entrepreneurs all around the world.

Wikimedia Foundation Inc.

EDUCATION: Wikimedia is a global movement whose mission is to bring free educational content to the world. Wikipedia enables any one of us to know everything about anything immediately. That is probably the #1 most impactful thing to do in order to advance the human race.

Khan Academy Inc.

EDUCATION: Khan Academy is enabling specialized education for free, for everyone.

Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine Inc

FOOD and HEALTH: PCRM is helping change medicine and nutrition. By putting prevention over pills, doctors are empowering their patients to take control of their own health. Since 1985, the Physicians Committee has been working tirelessly for alternatives to the use of animals in medical education and research and advocating for more effective scientific methods.

New Harvest Inc

FOOD: We consume way too much meat. At this rate, we'll destroy the planet. New Harvest is a non-profit advancing technologies to sustainably and affordably feed a growing global population.
