1% of the developed world's income can eliminate extreme poverty. Let it start with you.

One for the World

Despite the world being wealthier today than at any other point in human history, one billion people still live in extreme poverty. In most cases, people want to help, but hesitate because they don't know how, and the problems seem too large, too distant and too complex. One for the World is an organization that uses rigorous, data-driven charity selection to recommend the most effective charities to donate your dollars to. By giving at least 1% of your income to these effective charities, you can maximize your impact and fight extreme poverty.

Intentions ≠ Actions

"The majority of Americans (85%) say that they care about nonprofit performance, but only 35% do research on any charitable gift in the course of a year. Of those that research, most (63%) do so to validate the nonprofit they're seeking to give to. Only 3% of donors do comparative research to find the best nonprofit to give to." - The Elephant in the Brain (2017)
