Why does it matter?
With 10m+ charities globally, it's easy to give, but much harder to give effectively.

Seize the opportunity to maximize your impact

Not all charities are created equal and impact isn’t guaranteed. We research the world’s biggest problems and identify the most effective solutions, so that your donations can go as far as possible.

Founders Pledge has transformed my outlook on social impact. Their research team has helped me go from a vague idea for my foundation towards a rigorous and evidence-based strategy.

Signing up to Founders Pledge was very real for me...I gave it very detailed thought and, quite frankly, it turned out to be a no brainer.

Philanthropy is hugely important to me, but given the limited number of hours in a day, the ability to call on the experts at Founders Pledge is vital. Their personalized advice grounded in impact and the opportunities to meet other like-minded entrepreneurs have been crucial in shaping how I think and act on my giving.

I'm excited by how Founders Pledge is bringing the power of the venture world into philanthropy, bringing tech entrepreneurs and their mindset into it, embedding impact into their mindset early on, and helping them donate effectively. It's a real opportunity to drive outsized impact for many causes.
