EAA Environment Fund
Combat climate change by donating to highly effective, evidence based charities
What is this fund?
The EAA Environment Fund helps Australians to donate to the highest impact organisations working to combat climate change, worldwide.
Our two evaluation partners, Giving Green and Founders Pledge, perform rigorous research to identify some of the world’s most effective, evidence based, high leverage climate initiatives. And we choose charities for this fund that have been independently recommended by both organisations. This means that we can find the best opportunities for maximising your impact on climate.
Donations of at least $2 are tax-deductible to donors in Australia.
Our evaluation partners spend over 4,000 hours a year researching high impact charities.
100% of donations to the fund go directly to our recommended charities
EAAE is independently supported by external donors who give directly to our operations.
What has the biggest impact on climate?
Most of us do what we can to help the environment – we use less electricity, use solar, recycle.
The Effective Altruism Australia Environment Fund helps Australians support those charities, and amplify their climate impact.
