A note on this page's publication date

The content on this page has not been recently updated. This content is likely to be no longer fully accurate, both with respect to the research it presents and with respect to what it implies about our views and positions.

How we found applicants describes the process by which we invited organizations to apply for grants in all five of our causes. We invited 107 to apply within our international causes (saving lives and global poverty). 59 completed our Round 1 application; 48 did not apply. Full details of how we found applicants, for all five of our causes, are available here.

Our Non-finalists writeup describes how we narrowed these 107 applications down to our 16 finalists: 12 in the cause of saving lives and 4 in the cause of global poverty.

We devote one page to each of our finalists, going in depth on what we know about the organization and its activities, to give a better sense of where the claims in our overview come from.
