In absolute terms, the United States is the largest donor among members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC), spending around $35 billion annually on foreign aid. However, the US gives a smaller proportion of its GDP than most other DAC countries. If the US gave as large a fraction of its GDP as the United Kingdom does, its foreign aid spending would be close to $110
million. Advocating for increased U.S. foreign aid spending is thus sometimes considered a potentially high-impact intervention. Besides pushing for increased spending, advocates can push for more cost-effective spending.
