Why does GiveWell collect donations on behalf of its recommended charities? For two main reasons: (1) It allows us to track our own impact on donations and (2) it gives us a chance to ask you if you'd like to receive updates on GiveWell's research.

Will my donation be tax-deductible? GiveWell (a.k.a. The Clear Fund) is a federally-recognized tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. US donors are able to take tax deductions for donations to GiveWell to the extent permitted by US tax laws. In addition, GiveWell is able to make grants to our recommended charities. Please note that donations to GiveWell are irrevocable and donor requests to grant donations to our recommended charities are subject to our approval (more details on GiveWell's approval process here).
Can I give directly to the charity instead? Yes, but it's important to us to track donations made due to our research. If you choose to give directly (rather than through our site), please let us know through our donation report form. Click here to donate directly to Living Goods.
