Welcome to the 2020 High Impact Giving Guide, designed to help donors make a bigger difference with their philanthropic gifts.
This year we focus on four social impact areas where there is an opportunity to make a collective change: strengthening democracy in the U.S., mental health and addiction, global health, and disaster relief. The organizations featured were identified by our team and analyzed for evidence of impact and cost-effectiveness. With each opportunity, we provide background on a specific cause, a nonprofit working effectively in that space, ways to contribute financially, and additional organizations doing similar work.
On behalf of our team, we hope this guide helps you translate your generosity and good intentions into high impact.
