Effective Altruism Foundation


An effective altruist think-and-do-tank

The Effective Altruism Foundation (EAF) is a think-and-do-tank with the aim of improving the quality of life of as many sentient beings as effectively as possible. Effective altruism is a philosophy and growing global movement. Currently a small full-time team and 30 volunteers work on several projects, with a focus in the areas of evidence-based poverty reduction, animal ethics, global warming and risks of future technologies.

The predecessor of the EAF was founded in November 2013 as a tax-exempt association under the name "GBS Switzerland". Since the EA activities of GBS Switzerland have grown strongly within a short time and the team has been expanded quickly, the Effective Altruism Foundation was recently founded. This site is currently under construction and contains mostly introductory content for now. More in-depth content can be found on the website of GBS Switzerland meanwhile.
