An Exciting Summer Campaign Announcement
After four months, The Charity Experiment has featured 12 of the most effective charities in the world, raised well over $600, and have made a direct impact on the charities doing the most good. We are overwhelmed by the support and engagement our campaigns have received.
We owe an enormous thank you to everyone who has donated or voted.
At The Charity Experiment, we are continuously adjusting our processes and goals to ensure that we remain as effective and efficient as possible.
Being highly effective means doing the right things and being efficient means doing things right.
With this in mind, we are excited to announce the launch of a new three-month summer campaign featuring three of the most effective charitable organizations focused on alleviating extreme poverty.
Our goal here is to create more digital and social media content for each charity, increase our total number of donors, and increase overall donation amount. We believe this new campaign will improve engagement and donation results while providing us with an opportunity to do more for our featured charities.
We hope that you will support our summer campaign by donating to or voting for the charity that resonates with you most.
