Donate to highly effective global health and poverty charities
EANZCT can now issue tax receipts eligible for tax credits for ALL our partner charities. This change was passed in Parliament on the 12th March 2019, and is backdated to allow for tax credits for all donations from the 1st April 2018.
The Effective Altruism New Zealand Charitable Trust (EANZCT) has partnered with three of GiveWell‘s most highly recommended charities: Against Malaria Foundation, Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, and GiveDirectly (cash transfer program or basic income research), so that you can donate to them through EANZCT and receive a receipt that you can use to get 33 1/3% of your donation back as a tax credit.
Note that due to NZ charity law we can only divert donations to charities working to improve global health and poverty. Effective Altruists are interested in many other cause areas where we could maximise our positive impact in the world. Information on other effective altruism cause areas.
There are two steps to donating through the Effective Altruism New Zealand Charitable Trust
- Complete the form below. This will update our systems, generate a unique code for you to use for the transfer, and give you EANZCT’s bank account number.
- Complete the bank transfer with your bank online, entering the unique code we provide as the reference so that we can match your donation. You will receive a confirmation email within 7 days of your donation being received. If your donation was a once off transfer your receipt will be attached in this email. If your donation is recurring your receipt will be emailed to you at the end of the financial year (March 31st).
Your donation will be forwarded in full to the charity you selected.
If you have any issues with the donation form just email [email protected] and we can help you donate another way.
