Brought to you by Giving By All
Giving By All is an initiative of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Its goal is to inspire and enable more informed and intentional generosity by everyday givers.
We support programs in the United States and abroad that give donors resources to make informed decisions about their philanthropy. We invest in innovation and research to determine how and why individuals give, and to identify new opportunities to unlock more philanthropic resources to tackle complex problems and improve lives.
How do I use Better Giving Studio?

BGS develops product ideas to demonstrate how giving platforms can integrate the learnings from the latest donor behavior research to increase the quantity and quality of giving. We offer a range of product ideas that each include summaries and links to relevant research, examples of analogous products from other sectors, and interactive, annotated wireframes. Each concept is also available to download as a PDF for easy sharing within your team or organization. You can browse all of our available product ideas, or look for product ideas that address specific moments in the donor journey or target defined giving outcomes. You can also learn more about the latest innovations and research around giving on our resources page. And sign up for updates to be notified when we add new product ideas.

 Please share your reactions to individual product ideas, or reach out to us directly to tell us about your own experience related to innovation in philanthropy.
