Rethink Charity Forward: Giving Platform for Canadian Donors

Rethink Charity has launched RC Forward, Canada’s first cause-neutral donation routing fund for high-impact charities around the world.

Until now, Charity Science Outreach (CSO) has been accepting donations from Canadians to GiveWell-recommended charities. Many of these are not registered charities in Canada, so CSO has been able to generate receipts with which donors can claim tax benefits. Through this service, CSO has disbursed over CAD $600,000 to effective charities in the past year.

Now that the founders of Charity Science have turned their focus to Charity Science Health, Rethink Charity has taken the reins with RC Forward. We’ve expanded the list of tax-deductible organizations to include high-impact charities in cause areas like animal welfare and far future risk, in addition to global health and poverty. RC Forward also features a new and intuitive donation platform, thanks to our partnership with the Charitable Impact Foundation (CHIMP).

Rethink Charity was founded by two former employees of Charity Science, one of whom—Baxter Bullock—has been running Charity Science Outreach since early 2016. This means that donors will be in touch with the same contacts as before, and will be offered the same donation options (and more).

There are currently four cause area funds for unrestricted donations—Global Health, Human Empowerment, Animal Welfare, and Future Prosperity—and nine charities to which donors can make direct gifts. Using this new platform, online high-impact fundraisers can also be initiated for any of the above funds or charities (more information on this soon).

RC Forward will initiate quarterly disbursements to selected Canadian and American charities. All fees for cross-border donations made in 2017 will be generously covered by Charity Science. RC Forward will strive to provide this service for no fees whatsoever into 2018 and beyond.
