From the Desk of Our Executive Director

We have been getting some really positive feedback about our myth series, and we look forward to confronting more myths with truth in upcoming newsletters. In this newsletter, however, we want to take a break from the series in order to share our 2019 annual report.

We hope you’ll take a moment this week to read all about our progress — or, if that seems too daunting, at least to skim my opening letter, leaf through the charts, and enjoy the pictures :). 

Download our 2019 Annual Report

The successful launch of Peter’s updated version of The Life You Can Save made 2019 a special year for our organization and, we believe, a pivotal moment for the entire effective giving movement. We are confident that the reissue will help spread Peter’s ideas far and wide (in multiple formats!) and influence how people donate to nonprofits for years to come — and that’s well worth our investment of time and money!

I want to take this opportunity to say “Tack så mycket!” (“Thank you very much!”) to our wonderful, thoughtful, collaborative, and hard-working Swedish colleagues at Meepo for generously creating and donating to The Life You Can Save an easy-to-use micro-donation app, which will allow us to collect more donations from a wider group of donors!!

Last but not least, I want to encourage you to stay apprised of the wonderful work being done by our recommended nonprofits in honor of World Refugee Day and in response to COVID-19, some of which we’ve highlighted in this communication.

Do Good. Feel Good.
