Giving cash and measuring the results to



40% of Americans don't have $400 saved for an emergency. We plan on changing that. 

We're creating a cash transfer platform so that 100% of your donation goes directly to families living in poverty. And by partnering with researchers and economists, we can evaluate our efficacy to ensure your dollars go further.  


Community Focused

We started DGL as a more efficient means of helping our community. By giving donors' contributions directly to our recipients, we ensure that every dollar has the highest impact possible.

Research Driven

We carefully partner with leading academics and other non profits to expand the ever-growing body of research behind direct cash giving. As the data keeps coming in, we change our approach accordingly.  


When we get it right, we'll let you know. When we get it wrong, we'll let you know. All of our research is trackable, reproducible, and available for others to learn from.
