What people say about us

Independent charity evaluators

A number of independent charity evaluators review causes and individual charities and make their own giving recommendations.


Against Malaria Foundation: Top rated (every year since 2009)

"The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is one of our top-rated charities and an organization that we feel offers donors an outstanding opportunity to accomplish good with their donations.

Thousands of hours of research have gone into finding our top rated charities. They're evidence-backed, thoroughly vetted, and underfunded.

Malaria is one of the leading killers of children in Africa. Insecticide-treated nets prevent deaths and many other non-fatal cases of malaria."

GiveWell conducts extensive research with a particularly high level of rigour and analysis and to date has spent hundreds of hours investigating AMF and our work including two distribution site visits in Africa.


Giving What We Can

Against Malaria Foundation: Top rated (every year since 2012)

"AMF's program has a strong track record of preventing malarial infections. Its emphasis on preparation, distribution and follow-up ensures that it realises its potential in combating malaria and its effects.

It is also highly cost-effective, as its lean organisational structure, careful use of technology and partnerships with local charities keep its costs exceptionally low.

AMF is also extremely transparent about its operations. By posting its pre- and post-distribution reports online, it allows the public to see how effective it is in each instance. Its website lists all donations received and links each donation to a specific distribution, so donors can follow its progress and see the impact that they are having."

GWWC carries out notable levels of research including full reviews of the analysis of other organisations, such as GiveWell.


The Life You Can Save

Against Malaria Foundation: Top rated (every year since 2012)

"Why AMF is effective: cost-effective, effective monitoring and evaluation, economically beneficial, proven results, exceptionally low overheads and designed for long-term impact."

Charity Listing websites

A number of organisations list charities and provide various levels of comment on transparency and performance. We include some of them here.


AMF listing on GuideStar website

Where we have been asked questions about AMF being listed on other website/s, as appropriate, we include status information here.

Charity Navigator

AMF is not currently listed on the Charity Navigator website. Charity Navigator has told us this is for three reasons:

  1. The latest AMF annual accounts (FY 2011) available to them show revenues under their threshold of $1m. (We have sent them our 2012 filing which shows revenues in excess of $2m)
  2. Charity Navigator has a backlog of 2,000 charities to review and AMF would join the list beneath that group.
  3. Charity Navigator do not review any charity with a fundraising cost of $0. AMF has a fundraising cost of $0 due to our structure and pro bono support. We have explained the reason for this line item being zero for AMF and asked if, with this understanding, this would not preclude AMF being reviewed. We are waiting for a response (as at Oct 2012)


AMF is currently not listed on the Charity Watch website. This is because charities need to be recommended to them by their members. Charity Watch also acknowledge they have limited resources and are not able to review all the charities they might wish to.
