GD - GiveDirectly

We give cash directly to people living in poverty.

GiveDirectly is the first — and largest — nonprofit that lets donors like you send money directly to the world’s poorest. We believe people living in poverty deserve the dignity to choose for themselves how best to improve their lives — cash enables that choice.

Donors have delivered over 300 million dollars to people in need.

Since 2009, we’ve delivered over $300 million in cash directly into the hands of over 500,000 families living in poverty.

And no, people don’t just blow it on booze.

It’s ok. Many people think that at first.

In fact, research finds people use cash in impactful and creative ways.

We read the research. We read more research. Then we did our own research. And it turns out, people use cash on medicine; cows and goats and chickens; school fees; water; solar lights; tin roofs; irrigation; motorcycles to jumpstart taxi services; businesses to generate income; and more.

If you think about it, doesn’t giving directly make sense?

Cash allows individuals to invest in what they need, instead of relying on aid organizations and donors thousands of miles away to choose for them. Isn’t this what you would prefer?
