GiveWell evaluates international aid organisations. They examine not only the financial and legal status, but also above all projects’ effectiveness. GiveWell is strict: of over 200 organisations which have been scrutinised, only three have so far been recommended to donors. GiveWell also evaluates itself: failures and missed objectives are documented and internal meetings are published as podcasts. GiveWell is highly critical, but when someone donates to a recommended project over the platform, they can be certain that the money will be a good social investment.
