Global Health and Development

Global Health & Development

We believe that every life has equal value—and that philanthropic dollars can go particularly far by helping those who are living in poverty by global standards. Most of our giving in this category is to organizations recommended by GiveWell, with whom we have a close relationship. We are excited to support evidence-backed, cost-effective interventions to save and improve lives in the developing world. An additional subset of our giving supports scientific research we believe can help address diseases that disproportionately afflict the global poor.


Grantmaking process

We are not accepting unsolicited proposals at this time.

In past years, GiveWell has conducted extensive searches for charities that focus on priority programs. If you know of organizations they are missing, you can submit them for consideration.

For more information see our Guide for Grant Seekers.
