RC Forward: Global Health Fund
RC Forward supports high-impact charities around the world. Donations to our funds will be allocated to evidence-based charities. These charities have been recommended by charity evaluators like GiveWell and Life You Can Save so you know that your donation is making a big impact.
Global Health is a high-impact cause area, and preventing is often more cost-effective than treating. The diseases easiest to battle are long gone in the developed world. This is because they're extremely easy and cheap to prevent and treat. These are the 'low-hanging fruit' for reducing human suffering and saving lives.
Currently, the Global Health Fund allocates donations to the following charities based on recommendations from charity evaluators:
-Against Malaria Foundation (anti-malarial bednets)
-Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (deworming programs)
-Project Healthy Children (food fortification)
-Iodine Global Network (battling iodine deficiency)
Our goal is to guide giving with reason and evidence, so you don't have to guess which charities will do the most good. We support many different kinds of charities, all unified by one thing: evidence showing they're among the best in the world. See shicschools.org/what-is-high-impact-charity for more information.
IMPORTANT: If you start your own campaign, anyone can give and be issued a tax receipt, but please make sure donors to your campaign know that these receipts are only valid for Canadian taxpayers.
Rethink Charity (teamed up with the Chimp Foundation) is giving Canadian donors the opportunity to donate tax deductibly to high-impact charities in and outside of Canada. Donate to our other funds or to specific charities by visiting rcforward.org.
