What We Do

The mission of The Life You Can Save is to help change the culture of giving in affluent countries and to generate donations to highly impactful nonprofits that reduce suffering and premature death, and improve life and livelihoods, for people living in extreme poverty.

Everything we do aims to expand awareness of the concept of “effective giving” and grow revenue for our Recommended nonprofits.  We have a small but dedicated Team that manages our website and marketing, creates content like our monthly newsletter, develops partnerships to help scale our impact, and engages in educational activities like our Giving Games program and public talks.  

Our results to date and our plans for future growth are captured in our 2017 Annual Report.

We hope you’ll stay connected with our work by following us on social media and by subscribing to our newsletter. Please direct any questions or inquiries to [email protected], or directly to our Executive Director, Charlie Bresler, at [email protected]
