Charity evaluation

From a cause prioritization perspective, the important questions are:

  • To what extent does charity evaluation lead to having a bigger impact on the world?

    • Based this, how should we decide how much effort to put into charity evaluation?

The main case study here would be GiveWell.

Other examples: Charity Navigator

Charities may be able to increase their effectiveness by funding more projects like Impact Purchase (see Ben Kuhn’s summary here).
