Note: This grant was awarded while the Open Philanthropy Project was a partnership between GiveWell and Good Ventures.
Good Ventures awarded a grant of $2 million to GiveDirectly in December 2013 and matched $5 million in additional donations to GiveDirectly from December 3, 2013 through January 31, 2014. Both grants were for general operating support in recognition of GiveDirectly’s earning a “top charity” ranking from GiveWell in 2013. See GiveWell’s review of GiveDirectly for more about its activities and to follow its progress.
