RC Forward allows donors with a valid Canadian physical address to give to some of the highest-impact charities in the world in a number of cause areas. Donors can give unrestricted donations to a cause area through RC Funds, or specifically to one of the charities we’ve collaborated with.

100% of your donation (minus credit card fees, if applicable) goes to the cause of your choice. Rethink Charity Forward will strive to extend its “zero fees” initiative indefinitely.

If you are making a donation of $1000 or more, or a monthly donation of $200 or more, please send an email to baxter@rtcharity.org so we can provide you with alternative donation options that could cut back significantly on third-party fees.

RC Forward is a service brought to you by Rethink Charity (in partnership with the Chimp and Priority Foundations). Special thanks to Charity Science, who allowed us the opportunity to provide this service for Canadian donors.

Donate the to the fund of your choice below, or if you know exactly where you want your donation to go, donate to a specific high-impact charity.
