WHAT WE DO

The Life You Can Save was founded by Peter Singer to promote the approach of effective giving. We make it easy to support interventions proven to reduce suffering and premature death, and to improve lives and livelihoods, for people living in extreme poverty (less than $1.90 per day). The Life You Can Save recommends charities based on their effectiveness and evidence, ensuring that donations have the greatest impact possible.

THE WHY AND HOW OF EFFECTIVE ALTRUISM

In his TedTalk, our founder, the philosopher Peter Singer, asks provocative questions that will help you reconsider why and how you give—no matter what amount!
