Center for Global Development
Award Date:
To support CGD’s efforts to reduce global poverty and inequality through rigorous research and active engagement with the policy community.

Good Ventures, with input from GiveWell, awarded a grant of $300,000 to be paid over three years to the Center for Global Development (CGD) in July 2013 for general operating support. The grant will support CGD’s research on topics related to global poverty and inequality. We’ve found CGD to be a valuable resource as we explore potential future focus areas for Good Ventures. Learn more about our rationale for awarding this grant and how CGD is informing our work.

This award is a “learning grant,” meaning that it’s designed to help us learn more about an organization or cause we find promising. This grant is unrestricted so that the organization can decide for itself how best to translate the funds into impact.
