Our wallets aren’t infinite. With so many organizations and causes to give your money to, how can you decide where it will do the most good? The effective altruist research community has argued that you can maximize the effect of your donations by focusing on causes that are very big, meaning that they have a big effect on a great many lives; tractable, meaning that donations will actually make a difference; and neglected, meaning that your particular donation matters a lot. Our expert analysts have compiled a list of charities that work on such causes.
