Making a Bank Transfer Donation to GiveWell

Thanks for your interest in donating to GiveWell!

For donors with US bank accounts, GiveWell is now able to accept EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer) donations via our online donation form here. Because of the extra administrative work associated with wire donations, GiveWell generally recommends donating via EFT instead when possible. More information on EFT here. If you complete your donation via EFT instead of via a wire transfer, there is no need to fill out the form below.

You can direct your donation to our Top Charities Fund (we updated the name of this fund in September 2022, more information here), the All Grants Fund, unrestricted support, or one or more of our top charities. Please complete our donation form below prior to making your donation. Doing so will:
  • enable us to match your contact information with the bank/wire transfer we receive and send you a receipt;
  • allow you to specify your preference for how we allocate your donation; and
  • reduce the administrative cost associated with processing your donation.
Donations received without an accompanying donation form submission or identifying information in the wire memo will be treated as anonymous donations to our unrestricted fund, which we may use to either support our operating expenses (most likely) or grant out to charities at our discretion. After completing this form, please use GiveWell’s bank account information below to complete your transfer:
