Giving What We Can is an international society for the promotion of the most cost-effective poverty relief, in particular in the developing world. Members of Giving What We Can have pledged to give 10% of their income to the organizations they judge to be the most effective at tackling poverty.

Founded by moral philosopher Dr Toby Ord in November 2009, Giving What We Can is a charity whose aims are to encourage people to commit to long-term donation to the causes that provide the most cost-effective poverty relief. Giving What We Can conducts extensive research into the relative effectiveness of charities, and provides a list of those it most highly recommends. Currently this includes charities that work to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), tuberculosis, and malaria.
