Information for Donors Referred From the Effective Altruism Foundation, Which Runs the Raising for Effective Giving Program

The Effective Altruism Foundation (EAF) is a Switzerland-based non-profit think tank and project launching hub for rationality, applied ethics, and science. EAF runs the Raising for Effective Giving (REG) program, among others.

GiveWell is a 501(c)3 U.S. public charity. Donations to GiveWell are deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes to the extent permitted by law.

Donors can give to GiveWell and specify how GiveWell should designate their gift (for the support of EAF, for the support of one of GiveWell's recommended charities, or for GiveWell's operations). GiveWell collects no fees from such donations. GiveWell's board retains discretion over how to use these funds.

We will share donors' names and contact information with EAF.
