See original list here https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities Read more about GiveWell at givewell.org. This is how GiveWell summarizes who they are https://www.givewell.org/about "GiveWell is a nonprofit dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities and publishing the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give. Unlike charity evaluators that focus solely on financials, assessing administrative or fundraising costs, we conduct in-depth research aiming to determine how much good a given program accomplishes (in terms of lives saved, lives improved, etc.) per dollar spent. Rather than try to rate as many charities as possible, we focus on the few charities that stand out most (by our criteria) in order to find and confidently recommend high-impact giving opportunities (our list of top charities)." This is how GiveWell summarizes how they choose Top Charities https://www.givewell.org/how-we-work/process "GiveWell's mission is to find outstanding charities and to publish the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give. Our focus is on finding and reviewing the most outstanding charities possible rather than completing an in-depth investigation for each organization we consider. We identify top charities by assessing them along four criteria: Their evidence of effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, transparency, and room for more funding. Learn more about our criteria here. This page discusses our process for identifying and researching GiveWell’s top charities, as well as some of the context behind what our process has been in the past and how it has evolved to its current state."
