Evaluating charities is really difficult. Overheads tell you how much money is spent, but not how well it’s spent. There are countless factors to consider if you are to truly understand the capabilities of any organization you’re looking to support.

Charity Discussions

We believe the best giving decisions don't come from individuals, but from a collective effort. That's why we trust the Community with all of our charity selections.

Chary discussions will start on January 10th, 2022.

Your questions are unique, but here are frequently asked.

How do you create a list of causes to support?

Our list is designed to capture the causes that people most care about at any given point in time. We update the list regularly to reflect our changing world, and we’re happy to hear suggestions on causes that we may have overlooked.

I'd like to volunteer, how can I join?

Fantastic! We’re always looking for extra sets of hands, so if you’re interested in helping us help the world, send your resume to

How do you decide which charities to fund?

We rely on our Community of people who are passionate about giving, people who understand how charities work and what makes them effective. Through a public forum the community will rigorously evaluate charities and do their best to rely on available evidence and data.

Can I donate publicly traded stocks, real estate, life insurance or cryptocurrency?

Some charities can accept different method of donations, we suggest looking into the recommended charity's website.

Do you have fees?

People’s Foundation does not have fees and we are not compensated by the charities we select. When you donate directly to the charity, they may have their own transactional fees on credit card donations.

Why do you believe this model works?

We believe that individual perspective, as well intentioned as it can be, is not enough. By including more voices in a democratic way, we get a more rounded view of the most pressing issues in the world.

Is the People's Foundation a registered charity?

People's Foundation is not a registered charity and we do not accept donations. You can look at us as an advisory group that looks for effective giving opportunities.

Is my contribution tax deductible?

We recommend charities all over the world, and some charities may not be registered in the country you reside. We find that the impact of an effective donation will outweigh the foregone tax benefit.

What do you do with my email?

We rely on your feedback to select charities, and we collect that feedback via email. Don’t worry, we don’t share your email with third parties or the charities we select!
