The Life You Can Save - The Life You Can Save Australia
Leverage your impact by donating to The Life You Can Save Australia.
The Life You Can Save will be launching in Australia by mid-2019 and we are currently looking for Founding Partner and Founding Community Members to help advance our mission: Transforming the culture of giving and ending global extreme poverty.
As a Founding Partner or a Founding Community Member you will play a pivotal role in establishing our Australian operations and growing the organisation’s global impact by funding start-up costs and investments in our global fundraising program, designed to raise funds for our recommended charities. To date, our U.S.-based organisation has generated an impressive $11 for effective charities for every $1 invested. In Australia, we look to build on that success and in the early years we are aiming for an ambitious 5:1 ‘return on investment’.
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.
Become a Founding Community Member today by signing up to give a monthly donation of $50, $100 or $1,000 (minimum $25).
Become a Founding Partner. Individuals and organisations can become Founding Partners by pledging $15,000 or more for three years, providing a sustainable income source enabling The Life You Can Save’s work.
