Our recommendations for giving in 2022

The end of the year is approaching, you’re probably thinking about donating some of your money if you can afford to. GiveWell is an organisation that researches highly effective causes and organisations to donate to. Every year, they publish a list of their top recommendations. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time researching yourself, it’s a safe bet to go with their recommendations (I’ve done so many times). However, their list — and the methodology behind it — are also a great starting point for familiarising yourself with ways to assess the effectiveness of donations and for asking the right questions before picking a charity to donate to.
