Global Community & Chapters

Effective Altruism (EA) has a global community of people who care about making "doing good" a part of our lives. On top of that, we want to be as effective as we possibly can. 

EA Singapore is one of 300+ chapters around the world, in different cities, countries and/or academic institutions. As a "chapter", we can be understood of as a "local branch" of EA.

Giving What We Can (GWWC) Pledge

Globally, there are more than 3,000 Giving What We Can pledgers, who have made a commitment to donate to the charities that will have the biggest impact. This is one action that people can take to concretely make a difference in others' lives. 



EA organisations are characteristic in using evidence and reason in order to find the best ways to improve the world. They are part of the Effective Altruism (EA) movement. 

Most of these organisations are based in Oxford, UK and San Francisco bay area, USA - two places that are considered as the hubs of EA.
