Donation & Payment Options
We strive to make it easy to donate to effective charities. To that end, we offer a number of donation payment methods.
- Donations of A$2 or more made via thelifeyoucansave.org.au are tax-deductible in Australia. For information about tax-deductibility in other countries, see our Tax Deductibility page.
- The Life You Can Save does not take any percentage of your donation, by default. As part of our mission to end global poverty, our digital book, tools and services are free, and always will be. You can help us by making a donation to The Life You Can Save itself.
Credit Card donations to our recommended charities can be made here on our website.
When donating by credit card, 1.2% + standard credit card fees are deducted by our third-party donation platform (Donorbox) and payment processor (Stripe).
Donations over $999 incur increased fees. We recommend donating by bank transfer to avoid these fees, so that 100% of your donation goes to your chosen charity.
