The Life You Can Save Australia Operations Fund
We invite you to support The Life You Can Save Australia Operations Fund as we establish a presence in Australia to grow our global impact. Donors to the Operations Fund will play a key role in building our Australian operations as we grow The Life You Can Save’s international reach. This will include: recruiting staff, building out technological capabilities, and distributing the 10th anniversary edition of Peter Singer’s landmark book, The Life You Can Save. In all of these ways, donors will be contributing to The Life You Can Save’s efforts to support interventions that are proven to effectively improve the lives of those in the world poorest countries.
Your gift supporting The Life You Can Save Australia’s Operations will have a multiplier effect, allowing us to reach new audiences and increase donations. In the US, every $1 spent on The Life You Can Save’s operations leads to $11 donated to our partner charities! In Australia, we are aiming for a five-fold return on operational spending ($5 donated for every $1 spent) within our first year. This is an opportunity to make an outsized impact, and your contribution will be pivotal to the success of The Life You Can Save Australia.
You can leverage your impact in three ways:
- Use the donation form on the right to donate any amount to support The Life You Can Save's operating costs
- Become a Founding Community Member by making a monthly donation of $50 or more
- Become a Founding Partner by pledging to donate $15,000 p.a. for three years (email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more info)
Your funds will help cover investments ranging from insurance, finance, and governance to fundraising campaigns, donation technology and the distribution of Peter Singer’s book in Australia and around the world.
