The Giving Game Project’s Vision and Strategic Plan
The Giving Game Project has an ambitious goal: we want to provide philanthropy education at a scale that will fundamentally shift the way people learn about, and practice, charitable giving. Why do we think we can achieve this goal, and how are we going to do it?
Are Giving Games a Better Way to Teach Philanthropy?
‘Experiential philanthropy’ – in which students are given real money to donate to charities – is the standard approach to teaching philanthropy to undergraduates. Millions of dollars yearly are spent on this model, but it hasn’t grown in nearly a decade and has yet to extend beyond North America. Is it time to re-think student philanthropy programmes? Less intensive and expensive formats like ‘Giving Games’ – low cost simulations of real giving choices – have greater potential for scale, and use scarce resources in a more efficient manner.
A Shift in Priorities at the Giving Game Project
The Giving Game Project has updated priorities, placing less emphasis on growth and more on finding sustainable funding for the next stage of our development, improving the way we followup with participants after a GG, and providing measurable results of the project’s efficacy.


The Life You Can Save’s 2016 Year in Review
Our 2016 Annual Report chronicles our ongoing growth, which would not be possible without our talented core Team and our skilled volunteers. Nor would it be possible without all of you who have generously donated to our Recommended Nonprofits as well as those who have financially supported TLYCS itself over the past few years. And last, but certainly not least, we are indebted to Peter Singer for his ongoing advocacy on behalf of the global poor and his enthusiasm for and help with the development of The Life You Can Save as an organization.
Announcing Our New and Improved Charity Selection Methodology
As Chief Operating Officer of The Life You Can Save, I'm excited to announce our new methodology for selecting our list of recommended charities. We know our list is a critical piece of what we offer to donors, and feel a strong responsibility to offer people reliable and great giving opportunities. In the short term, the shift we're making won't lead to major changes. But the improvements we're introducing today will help ensure that over the long run our process continues to produce a list of charities donors can trust.
A Request from The Giving Game Project
You can multiply the impact of your giving by supporting the Giving Game Fund. By sponsoring Giving Games, you can help participants learn by giving. You’ll still be able to help great charities, but you’ll get added leverage by influencing participants to give better and supporting the outreach efforts of effective giving advocates worldwide.
