We’ve built a community of people who are passionate about giving, who bring diverse ideas, experiences and perspectives, and who can freely discuss the best ways to give.
The following are the guiding principles of People’s Foundation. These principles are open for discussion, and can be added, subtracted or changed as the community sees fit. Any potential amendment can be put up for discussion and will be decided by a vote.
The community will always represent the interest of the donor, and not be used as a fundraising tool for specific charities.
Race, religion, color, creed, gender and sexual orientation of benefactors and beneficiaries will not play a role in charity selection.
All discussions should revolve around the effectiveness and impact of charities. We will aim to identify effective charities for each cause.
All metrics for charity evaluation are welcome, though we will avoid ranking charities. Members will use their trusted judgement to recommend charities.
Charities of any size in any country can be suggested, provided they are registered within their jurisdiction and have a website that can accept donations.
All discussions are public, given they fall within our guiding principles and community rules..
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.
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 email@example.com
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.
Some charities can accept different method of donations, we suggest looking into the recommended charity's website.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
