Making Donations Easy

Each year, in late December, I make a charity donation. Over the years I’ve chosen a charity in many different ways, but one thing has always been constant: I always choose projects that aim to improve science education.

However, one thing has been constantly improving: the ease of actually choosing, and this year it couldn’t have been easier thanks to two websites I would like to bring to your attention:

  • The Big Give: a well–designed site connecting over 5,000 charities worldwide with donors. You can filter by location, benefactor, sector, and project size (via Intelligent Life).
  • Donors Choose: specialising in U.S. education, this site connects donors directly with the classroom requiring help.
