What We Do
Our professional staff works hard to find, fund, and operate the programs that have the biggest impact across the globe.
Helping People, Pets, and the Planet
We work to alleviate and address the root causes of world hunger and food insecurity; to detect and treat breast cancer and other health concerns, particularly in women; prevent and treat childhood illness; and promote children’s literacy and education in the United States and around the world.

We support thousands of shelters and rescue groups all over the world through the various programs aimed at improving the lives of homeless pets as well as the lives of shelter workers and volunteers. We work with creative solutions to increase adoption and the retention of pets in their homes. Learn More
Whether purchasing land to protect endangered animal species, studying habitat for conservation and restoration purposes, or planting trees in deforested areas to offset carbon emissions, GreaterGood.org is on the front lines protecting our planet, its inhabitants, and its natural resources.

Programs We Fund
One of the programs we are most proud of is our carefully curated list of projects you can support called Gifts That Give MoreTM. Through this innovative program, we allow you to donate very specific things (such as a book, a meal, or an acre) to an array of programs around the world doing the very best work to protect people, pets, and the planet.
Our dedicated professional program staff works to identify organizations around the world having the biggest impact—in many cases, these are small, local nonprofits you may not have heard of, but they are independently vetted by our staff to ensure their work is best-in-class. Through this program, we allow you to make a donation that reaches the people on the ground doing the work.
Plus, 100% of your gift reaches the intended recipient for the program you choose. GreaterGood even covers the credit card processing fees. It’s a donation you can be proud of, and confident in.
So when you donate 1000 meals to shelter animals in need, you know that you are providing just that—1000 meals to hungry shelter pets. We have over 400 projects you can choose from and are adding more all the time. Thank you for Giving Where it Matters.
Programs We Run
In addition to our Gifts That Give MoreTM, GreaterGood.org operates a suite of Signature Programs in our areas of expertise: animal welfare, environmental education and natural history, and human health and education. When you support one of our Signature Programs, your gift goes straight to the project you choose, and because we directly administer these programs, we give you even more visibility into the outcomes and impact of your donation with reports from the field.
So, whether you’d like to help rebuild an animal shelter with Rescue Rebuild; feed shelter animals through Rescue Bank; protect jaguars through Project Wildcat; study and protect world-class biodiversity hotspots through Madrean Discovery Expeditions; provide mammograms to at-risk women in need; send girls to school safely in Afghanistan; give a book to a child without access to reading material; sponsor a girl’s scholarship so she can have the same opportunities as her male counterparts; help veterans find comfort and companionship through pet adoption; give much needed relief to human and animal disaster victims; and so much more… there is a Signature Program you can support to make a real difference.
Donations to our programs make great gifts. Right now, when you donate in honor of a loved one, you can send a custom message and an e-card straight to their inbox to let them know about your gift.
