GiveWell

Renowned charity evaluator GiveWell considers it “plausible that New Incentives will eventually become a GiveWell top charity” because of its evidence-based program and commitment to transparency. This assessment was announced on GiveWell’s blog in 2014 and influenced a decision by GoodVentures and the Lampert Family Foundation to support New Incentives with seed grants that allowed it to scale its programs to over 25,000 beneficiaries. – GiveWell’s latest assessment on New Incentives of May 2017

 

GoodVentures

GoodVentures is the charitable foundation of Facebook Co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and his wife Cari Tuna, who acts as the foundation’s President. Good Ventures, with input from GiveWell, has awarded several substantial grants to New Incentives from 2014 to 2017.
