Global Health Fund

Donate to the Rethink Charity Global Health Fund

Donate to a fund if you’d like your donation to remain unrestricted and passed on to the charities that need it most.

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.

Donate to charities identified by charity evaluator GiveWell as the best at effectively battling global poverty through health interventions.

In April 2018 the Global Health Fund distributed funds based on GiveWell’s recommended allocations:

  • 70% went to the Against Malaria Foundation (anti-malarial bednets)
  • 30% went to the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (deworming programs)

All dollar and gift amounts on this donation page are in Canadian Dollars (CAD).

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.

Here are all the Global Health and Poverty charities that you can donate to through RC Forward:
