Companies often have donation-matching programs which can double or even triple the amount of money that goes to charity when you give. Many people have introduced concepts from effective altruism at their own companies (for example, Google and Microsoft) by starting EA groups or working to promote effective giving opportunities during the holiday season.
If you want to start a group or promote giving at your company, get in touch with us; we'd be happy to provide advice!
Smaller businesses also sometimes promote effective giving. For example, the six-person Butler Law Firm gave away $100,000 to some of GiveWell's top charities (in both 2018 and 2019), and shared their story to draw more attention to GiveWell's work.
