You can have an astonishing impact by donating to effective charities.
You can have a lasting impact if you make a commitment to give effectively and consistently.
Thousands of people across the world have taken a Giving What We Can pledge to donate a meaningful portion of their incomes to improving the lives of others. We find a pledge helps for three main reasons:
- Commitment: Making public commitments helps us to live up to our values and stick with the goals we may otherwise let slide.
- Community: Joining a community provides us with support and advice that helps us to follow through with our commitments to help others.
- Culture: Taking a public pledge helps inspire others to follow our example. Together we can forge a world in which giving effectively and significantly is a cultural norm.
