When setting up the business 44 Consult made a pledge that a percentage of our annual net profit will be directed to a range of good causes.
We first aligned our pledge with the values of Effective Altruism (EA), donating to organisations which 'do good better'
The EA philosophy asks the question “Of all the possible ways to make a difference, how can I make the greatest difference?”
GiveWell, Giving What We Can Trust and The Life You Can Save seek to find those charities that do the very most to help people in developing countries with every pound they receive. They seek out those activities that will do the most good with our money
Since 2014 our pledge has: -
- De-wormed over 2,000 children, increasing their chances of attending school
and the opportunity of an education
- Purchased over 600 anti-malarial mosquito nets
- Purchased anti-malarial drugs for seasonal chemoprevention programs
- Directly funded many low-income households in Sub-Saharan Africa via
mobile phone-linked payment services

At 44 Consult we also have a deep interest in the preservation of endangered environments, protection of land and the regeneration of the Earth's natural habitats. We use some of our pledge to help fund mongabay.org
Mongabay.org aims to raise awareness about social and environmental issues relating to forests and other ecosystems
It serves as a powerful educational tool that empowers scientists, academics, conservationists, activists and everyday people to effectively address global environmental problems
Mongabay draws more than 2.5 million visitors per month and publishes stories in half a dozen languages. It is commonly used as an information source by mainstream media, including The Economist, Bloomberg, National Geographic, and the Associated Press. Mongabay is also widely recognised as an accurate and trust-worthy source by civil society organisations as well as development agencies. Over the years Mongabay’s impact has been substantial.
We directly support Mongabay's efforts to report on vital conservation news from around the planet.
