We also offer a trial pledge where you can pledge 1%-10% of income for a custom length of time, so you can see how pledging and giving feels!
That's so nice to hear :)
Welcome to the community and please feel free to reach out if we can help you at all! - Grace

The donor lottery should be run again at the end of 2023.
As far as we're aware this is the only donor lottery occurring.
And yes, the GWWC team took over the donor lottery from EA Funds at the end of 2021.
Update: The 2022 Donor Lottery has been drawn!
The draw for the donor lottery took place on January 24th and no winner was drawn for all 3 lotteries - meaning that the ‘benefactor’ was selected.
View the draws here:$2M lottery: No winner$500K lottery: No winner$100K lottery: No winner
This means that the funds will stay in the pot and will have the chance to be won in the next lottery.
This year, there was a high chance that the ‘benefactor’ would have won each of the lotteries and this is what occurred. The probability ranged from 74% for the $100K to 96.6% for the $2M. You can view the probabilities and payouts of past lotteries.
Thank you to those who entered the lottery, and best of luck if you choose to enter in the future!
I've added a bunch of Giving What We Can's videos under the different sections of your list!
We've had feedback from group leaders in the past that some of our videos have been helpful for introductory content for their groups. - Grace
Also between FB, LinkedIn and EA Forum about ~1000 people have responded to the event!
We already have a bunch of community members involved in the main event (they'll be sharing about their giving onscreen) but there will be a chance for everyone to discuss during the gathertown event afterwards!
We'll also be prompting people to let us know in the chat during the YouTube event!
