Don’t just give.
Make your dollar go further.

 
 
 
 

Have you thought about how much impact you can have when you give?

We think about this question — a lot.

By being situated in a high-income country like Singapore, more than 50% of the working population are in the top 2% of income earners in the world.

This means that we live in extraordinary times. With exponential growth in wealth, we have the opportunity to do something meaningful — with our resources — to help others.

In the effective altruism (EA) community, we not only care about doing good. We want to be more effective so that our limited resources can be translated into greater impact.
