I will frontpage this for like 4 hours because it's literally free money, and will move it back to personal once the window has passed.

I did this, but they are not allowing donations to any of the top-ranked charities I searched for (Give Directly, Malaria Consortium, Against Malaria).

Hi, I believe these should all be available (and I personally checked Malaria Consortium and saw that it was available). Did you try using the Search function to find the charities at the bottom right of the page listing the charity categories?

I found it, but the page would not allow me to select it.

The first one you mention appears in the list as one word, GiveDirectly.  I initially had trouble finding it.

I think you just need to use the search function and they should be available as long as they are US incorporated nonprofits. I donated to Animal Ethics Inc.
