It’s the season of giving, and there are scores of great causes and organizations to consider for your charitable dollars. Here at The Motley Fool, we use our annual Foolanthropy campaign to steer our community to highly efficient organizations that ensure their charitable giving has a big impact. We aim to amplify outcomes instead of simply providing one-off aid approaches.

This year, we have chosen Fistula Foundation as our Foolanthropy 2015 partner. Click here for an overview of how this organization works in more than 20 countries to give women back their lives through surgery that repairs a serious affliction in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia: obstetric fistula. This restorative surgery costs an average of just $450, and basically gives afflicted women their lives back.
