This is precisely the time to establish your philanthropic plans for 2014 and beyond. Watch this clip from The Willis Report where Ken explains how you should go about finding a charity to invest in long-term.

Hi Ken, love what Charity Nav is doing in terms of rating financial efficiency and effectiveness.. must have metrics. Are there any organisations that you are aware of that have, say, a panel of experts that take this information to come up with a suggested giving 'regime' in terms of charities to give to and in what order to solve a world problem over time? (e.g. Malaria, Muscular dystrophy etc...)

Chris,

There are some efforts like that but they tend to have a moralistic value judgement associated with them (i.e. you should only focus on global health as opposed to domestic needs).

Best,
Ken
