Some charities are up to a hundred times more effective than others, whereas many others achieve no significant impact at all. Some even have negative effects. Finding the best organizations isn’t easy, but it’s incredibly important in order to actually have a positive impact.

We have prepared a guide to simplify this process for smaller donations. However, if you plan on donating a larger amount, it may be advisable to invest a little more time in the decision. There are additional considerations which should influence your decision. With our tailored advice and impact masterclass, we are happy to help you ensure that you find the right recipient for your donation.

Co-Executive Director: Stefan Torges
“Since lives are literally at stake when we donate, we should think hard about how to best use our money—all the more so when it comes to large donations. At the same time, there are so many charities and information out there that it is difficult to keep an overview. We want to help with that.”

Tailored Advice

We provide free advice for donations above € 10,000. For smaller amounts, we recommend that you read our guide.

Impact Masterclass

Our one-day Impact Masterclass brings together philanthropists dedicated to having as much impact as they, so that they can find better solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. That’s it. In an increasingly complex world that’s enough of a challenge already.
