Our focus areas:
Most of us give opportunistically (e.g. we give because of someone we know, advertised fundraising campaigns, natural disasters, etc.) With an EA giving philosophy, you might want to rethink how you give. Discover how you are able to create a much greater impact with your donations.
Did you know that you spend 80,000 hours at work in your lifetime? Compared to 'volunteering', you might be able to create a much greater social impact in this world if you are more conscious about choosing a career that could make a lot of difference.
Outreach & Engagement
Effective Altruism (EA) is new to a lot of people. We want to get this idea out to more groups in Singapore - philanthropists, corporates (CSR), social impact sector, students and general donors. Besides encouraging people to consider how to do good more effectively, we also have a growing community that works on various EA projects here.
While we often tap on the existing resources in the global EA community to inform ourselves how to do good better, our local EA chapter also embarks on a few research projects. We do this to fill in our knowledge gaps, which are targeted at helping us be more informed in how we can donate, choose our careers and do good more effectively from Singapore.
