One of the most straightforward ways to make a difference is donating money to the causes you think are going to have the most charitable bang for your buck. This is certainly easier said than done — identifying the best charities is complicated work — but we’re here to help.

You can give to specific charities recommended by GiveWell, Animal Charity Evaluators, or The Life You Can Save, or let an EA Fund manager make a determination based on the cause you prioritize. You can also make sure to give regularly by setting up a recurring donation, and make a long-term commitment by taking the giving pledge.
