"GiveDirectly is one of our top-rated charities, and an organization that we feel offers donors an outstanding opportunity to accomplish good with their donations."

"The GiveDirectly team is outstanding, and their tool — unrestricted cash transfers — has the potential to become a new standard of comparison for efforts to help the global poor.”

"GiveDirectly's potential moving forward is massive...[they are] thinking big, pursuing impact outside the confines of their own program.”

"GiveDirectly is based on a simple yet powerful idea: find out if, when you give cash to very poor people, they use it well. GiveDirectly is completely open about not knowing the answer, but being willing to find out, through independently conducted randomised controlled trials." - Peter Singer
