Donate with maximum impact

Doneer Effectief is a completely independent initiative that makes effective giving accessible in The Netherlands and Belgium.

We help you give more effectively through:

Independent information

Many charities try to persuade you to donate to them. From our independent position, we are happy to explain to you how to make an effective choice. This is important, because even the money you give away can only be spent once.

About effective donating

Donate easily

Through our website, you donate to funds and charities rated as most effective by independent, scientific research institutions. From your donation, 100% of the amount goes to the charity.


Personal advice

Making conscious donations can raise questions about our methods, our funds, major gifts or tax deductions. Through our helpdesk we offer personal, free and independent advice. We are happy to help you on your way by answering all your questions with care and attention.

Be thoughtful about your giving

Rutger Bregman – Historian and author

I think all of us wonder sometimes if we are doing enough to make the world a better place.

The average Dutch person gives only 0.4 percent of their income to charity, and this is understandable. After all, how can you be sure that your gift really makes a difference?

There is good news – now there is a whole movement of people conducting rigorous, scientific research into exactly that question. As it turns out – if you are a resident of a rich country, you can improve the world by donating.

A few years ago, I made a decision: I pledged to donate at least 10 percent of my future income and think more about what I want to give to. Since then, it has become a yearly ritual. After the annual tax return my wife and I calculate what our “10 percent” is and we think about what we want to do with our donations that year.

Giving has become a normal part of our lives. It is no longer something I do by chance after seeing a tear-jerking commercial, but a habit that has great meaning to me, just as I consider it important to vote.

I really enjoy looking at our “portfolio” of donations now and thinking about how our money is at work making the world a better place.
