What is Founders Pledge?

Founders Pledge is a global community of founders and investors who have collectively pledged more than $392,000,000 of their personal proceeds from exit (business sale) to high-impact charities. We help funders find the most evidence-based and cost-effective donation opportunities. You can find more information here: https://founderspledge.com/

What we are looking for

We are looking for a volunteer to produce Word or PDF documents from HTML originals of GiveWell reports. We’d like the documents to retain GiveWell’s formatting and it is essential that the final documents look high-quality and professional. We have formatting details and style guide. We are looking to produce around 25 documents (i.e. all top and standout charities, plus related intervention reports). It’d be advantage if you could find a way to automatize the process, and would be happy to share this with us, so we can use it in the future.

Why?

We think GiveWell’s recommended charities are likely to be the best donation opportunities in the areas they research, so we want to move as much money as possible to those organisations. This is why we would like to present GiveWell’s research to our founders. We are working in partnership with GiveWell.

We plan to preface the reports with ‘layman’ introductory summaries, and explanations of how GiveWell’s recommended charities related to topics donors are often interested in (e.g. ‘averting deaths’, ‘improving quality of life’, ‘children’, ‘education, etc). We want to provide donors with documents including both GiveWell’s research and this introductory material. From our experience, presenting donors with stand-alone, professional-looking products increases their trust in the research presented, and thus the chance that they’ll donate to the organisations recommended.
