My department often has proctoring jobs which will pay quite well for not much work. Essentially, anyone who is quick to answer emails and has a couple of hours to spare on a Saturday can get the job. I already check my email several times a day and, when I don't proctor, I don't really miss the money or do anything much better with my time. So it seems like there is a great opportunity for doing some good here!

This Summer I decided to make a modest effort to get those proctoring jobs more often and donate 50% of what I earn through them to the Against Malaria Foundation, top rated charity by Give Well. That's protecting about 13 people from getting malaria for the next four years per proctoring job!

I hope you'll join this fundraiser, whether as a proctor or a supporter :-) I don't know how prevalent such proctoring jobs may be across schools in the developed world. If they're not, then maybe you could consider grading and/or tutoring. Whichever is your source of money, the point is to get proctoring/grading/tutoring to become the new "volunteering"!

If you like the idea but think that 50% is too much, I'd encourage you to still participate by donating whatever amount you feel comfortable; every dollar matters :-)
