Entries for 'Giving Games'

A Charity Election is a school-wide election where students vote on where to donate among a selection of charities chosen to inspire meaningful discussions and empower students to find their voice on complex global issues. Students research a selection of evidence-backed, impactful nonprofits and choose which will receive a sponsored donation. Charity Elections are a new form of Giving Game, sponsored by The Life You Can Save’s Giving Games Project.

Below is a record of The Charity Elections we have held so far, including pictures for the students and organizers!

Bringing Giving Games to Fall Activity Fairs!
The Life You Can Save’s Giving Games Project and One For The World are collaborating to bring high impact philanthropy to hundreds of college students during fall outreach events. This builds upon the insight we gained from holding Giving Games with One For The World chapters during the 2018- 2019 academic year. We are additionally pleased to add to our resource library two instructional videos on the content of a standard 60-90 minute Giving Game and each step of the Giving Game Platform. These materials were initially designed to assist chapter leaders, but we hope they will be of broader assistance to our network of facilitators.
Launching the Giving Games Platform
The Giving Games Project is delighted to make available a customizable Giving Games Platform and instructions for each stage of its use. This is a core component of our efforts to improve and systematize our impact tracking. The Life You Can Save and the Giving Games Project would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Luke Freeman for his tireless work creating the Platform and for his guidance on each stage of our impact tracking and David Moss and Catherine Low for their guidance on the concept and survey design.
