As part of their effective altruism project, the Giordano-Bruno-Stiftung (gbs) and the Effective Altruism Foundation (EAF, the official successor of GBS Switzerland) support GiveWell and its top charities. If you are a taxpayer in Germany or Switzerland, you can donate to gbs or EAF and specify that your donations can be used for the support of these charities.

gbs and EAF collect no fees from such donations. The boards of gbs and EAF retain full discretion over how to use these funds. Both organizations do not offer any fiduciary services.

GiveWell is a 501(c)3 U.S. public charity. EAF is a Switzerland-based non-profit foundation and project launching hub for effective altruism. gbs is a Germany-based non-profit foundation and think tank for evolutionary humanism. Donations to all three organisations are tax-deductible in their respective legislations.
