Today's question is: What’s the most cost-effective way to help people? How do you know your charitable giving will be spent most efficiently ?

GiveWell is a nonprofit dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities and publishing the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give.

It was co-founded by Ellie Hassenfeld who is my guest today. Ellie had a lucrative career in finance but wanted to figure out how he could be more charitable and make more informed decisions about giving.
