Each year, the Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP) releases a comprehensive guide designed to help donors transform generosity into high impact. Now celebrating their 10th anniversary, CHIP is pleased to release the 2018 High Impact Giving Guide.

In it, analysts have outlined 14 distinct opportunities for donors to make the most difference with their philanthropic gifts. The guide – which has already been featured prominently by the New York Times and Generocity – is also organized into three social causes: health, poverty, and education.

“When we launched CHIP 10 years ago, people asked us, ‘Why are you focused on how philanthropy could create greater social impact?’ Much has changed in a decade,” said CHIP Founding Executive Director Katherina Rosqueta. “Today, we’re asked ‘How can we all achieve greater social impact?’ The opportunities in this guide are one way to start and represent just a sampling of what’s available on our website. On behalf of our team, we hope this guide helps you translate your generosity and good intentions into high impact.”

CHIP is the only university-based center with a singular focus on philanthropy for social impact. Founded as a collaboration between the School of Social Policy & Practice and alumni of the Wharton School, it is a trusted source of knowledge and education to help donors around the world do more good.
