Global Health is a high-impact cause area, and preventing is often more cost-effective than treating. The diseases easiest to battle are long gone in the developed world. This is because they're extremely easy and cheap to prevent and treat. These are the 'low-hanging fruit' for reducing human suffering and saving lives.
Currently, the Global Health Fund allocates donations to the following charities based on recommendations from charity evaluators:
-Against Malaria Foundation
-Schistosomiasis Control Initiative
-Project Healthy Children
Our goal is to guide giving with reason and evidence, so you don't have to guess which charities will do the most good. We support many different kinds of charities, all unified by one thing: evidence showing they're among the best in the world. See our page, What Is High-Impact Charity?
, for more information.
If you start your own campaign, anyone can give and be issued a tax receipt, but please make sure donors to your campaign know that these receipts are only valid for Canadian taxpayers.
As of February 26, 2020, donations made through RC Forward are subject to a 4% operations allocation,
with exceptions. Learn more on our blog
Rethink Charity (teamed up with the Chimp Foundation) is giving Canadian donors the opportunity to donate tax deductibly to high-impact charities in and outside of Canada. Donate to our other funds or to specific charities by visiting rcforward.org
If you are making a donation of $1000 or more, or a monthly donation of $200 or more, please send an email to email@example.com
so we can provide you with alternative donation options that could cut back significantly on third-party fees.
