With GiveDirectly, it is crystal clear where your money goes. 

With just a click, unconditional cash transfers are sent directly to the most underprivileged families in Uganda and Kenya.

Recipients use the money to create a better life for themselves—they may start businesses, provide education for their children, or purchase necessary food and healthcare. 

And it's efficient: With every $1,000 dollars donated, on average there is a $270 increase in earnings, $430 increase in assets, and $330 increase in nutrition spending. 85-90% of your donation reaches recipients.

GiveDirectly supervises the entire transfer of donations from start to finish so that donors will not have to question where their money goes. 

Donate to GiveDirectly and you will know you’re helping people establish new lives for themselves.

Make Your Next Fundraiser High Impact

Have you got a special celebration coming up? Maybe an anniversary or milestone at work? Maybe you've recently taken on a challenge you're really proud of, signed up for a half-marathon, or are considering a health detox like Dry January! Why not use the occasion to raise money for your favorite high-impact charity?

By donating to your fundraiser and helping raise vital funds, friends, family and colleagues can show their appreciation for your achievement or provide a source of motivation to get you through your challenge!

Seem like a good idea? We think so!

So many of us have unwanted (not to mention environmentally wasteful) presents piling up in our homes from celebrations of years past. By participating in High-Impact Fundraisers, you can bypass the clutter and receive the greater satisfaction of doing good.

It’s a very low-time investment, high-impact way for an individual—or group—to raise hundreds or thousands of dollars for proven charities, thoroughly vetted by independent charity evaluators like The Life You Can Save, GiveWell, and Giving What We Can. Perfect for students or those who, while they may not have a lot of cash themselves, know or work with those who do.

So, join us—start your high-impact fundraiser today, and you won’t be sorry. Do it alone or ask friends to help and make it a group effort. Promote the campaign all around. Then watch the donations come rolling in as you rack up the satisfaction of knowing that your achievement or milestone has a made a difference in the lives of others.
