Tell us what matters to you

Dear born-again optimists,

This is for you. We believe in a global community that cares for each other.

It begins with a commitment to what you care about.

Introducing your Charitable Advisor

We recommend outstanding charities —
Backed by evidence and supported by experts.

Every charity demonstrates:

  • High impact
  • Alignment with your values
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Financial transparency
  • Tax-deductible

Measure your impact

If 250 people gave 1% of their household income towards

global health then 3000 people's blindness

can be cured with a $50 eye-surgery lasting less than 30 minutes

Based on the median US household income of $59,0391 donated to
(one of the world's most effective charities)

0% Fees,

Unless You Want to.

Donational is run at-cost by a team of dedicated members building useful tools for the greater good.

Donations are directly distributed to charities and make use of smart features like donation pooling to ensure that charities spend more on making an impact, and less on processing donations. Standard credit card payment processing fees apply.

We only make money if you choose to pay us, allowing us to continue to help you — and others — make a greater impact.

The power of many.

Give $1 or $1000, we can make a real impact together.

“I'm finally giving what I ought to!”

The amount that I donated used to depend on how I was feeling the day when I was asked. Donational gave me tools to help me understand how much I can give. It's so easy to track!

“It helped me realize what I care about”

I'd often try to research top charities for issues I cared about, only to get lost in all the details. Now, it's like having a personal advisor to guide me through a shortlist of highly effective charities.

— Marco Vasquez

“It's like a smart co-pilot for my giving!”

I don't need to remember to mail in a bunch of checks or separately itemize handfuls of donations at tax time. I get peace of mind knowing that my money is getting to where it is needed.

— Jerry Bass
