Good Ventures awarded a grant of $50,000 to GiveWell for general operating support in December 2011. We expect this grant to increase the availability of high-quality information and analysis about charities and giving opportunities, thereby increasing the impact of donors who use GiveWell’s research and raising the level of discourse about charitable giving. Learn more about our rationale for supporting GiveWell and our partnership with GiveWell, which we announced in June 2012.
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. Follow our blog, Give & Learn, for updates on what we learn from this grant and others.
