Index Funds outperform the vast majority of active-traders. We believe the same can be true for impact, and that crypto donors can lead the way.

Diversify your giving, ?multiply your impact | The Giving Block

Diversify your giving, multiply your impact.

Index funds spread a single investment across a basket of stocks instead of just one. Each year, on average, Index Funds perform 1.4% better than picking winners. We’re on a mission to make this happen in the nonprofit sector, because 1.4% adds up.

Support the laboratories of effective altruism.

Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis called the states “laboratories of democracy,” referencing how state-level social and economic experiments produced superior federal policies. Supporting an Impact Index Fund means putting money in the hands of a greater number of nonprofit innovators, giving more great ideas a fighting chance.
