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.

Yet that is a question of “how,” not “if.” I hope that sharing my story as a former skeptic of basic income will encourage a conversation about the next steps on this question of “how.”

The scandal around the Trump Foundation unfortunately hurts all nonprofits, regardless of their role in the scandal. This is due to how our brain is wired - a negative association with one nonprofit undermines all others. Fortunately, savvy donors and nonprofit staff alike can take steps to support the nonprofit organizations that deserve trust through focusing on their cost-effectiveness, namely impact per dollar.
