Supporting outstanding nonprofits together.

A selection process that's always evolving...


Our selection process is highly influenced by the work of the effective altruism (EA) project. While we mostly select EA charities, we also select organizations each year that we believe are doing important work that is harder to quantify. Maximizing our positive impact is the #1 goal. We also talk to our community of donors regularly and collaboratively find the charities that address our biggest challenges.

This Month's Selection is Development Media International

Development Media International (DMI) runs evidence-based radio, TV and mobile campaigns to change behaviors and save lives in developing countries.

DMI was a Altruist selection in 2016 & 2017 and GiveWell lists them as a standout charity. Their deeply scientific and creative approach to empowering underserved communities continues to be a huge inspiration to us, and we’re proud support them in 2018!
