IDinsight partners with GiveWell to identify future top charities and improve existing top charities
December 26, 2016
GiveWell aims to channel philanthropic resources to the highest-performing and most cost-effective social sector organizations. Channeling millions of dollars a year into the developing world, GiveWell’s model uses transparency and rigorous evaluation to identify and recommend the most cost-effective “top charities”. In this new partnership, IDinsight is driving GiveWell’s analytical approach to develop and monitor the performance of current and future top charities.
Since 2007, GiveWell has published detailed analyses and recommendations of “effective” charities which meet rigorous criteria. Now, GiveWell is embarking on experimental work to support organizations “at any point in their development” with the hope of identifying additional top charities to recommend to donors.
IDinsight has set up a joint team with GiveWell and will work on monitoring top charities, supporting other charities to achieve top charity status, or generating evidence in line with our decision-focused model to inform a GiveWell top charity recommendation.
“IDinsight and GiveWell share a strong commitment to maximizing the impact of every dollar in global development,” said Neil Buddy Shah, CEO of IDinsight. “IDinsight is thrilled to be working with GiveWell to further that mission by using rigorous evidence to identify, evaluate, and support future potential top charities.”
