Effective Altruism Australia supports Australians to find and fix the world's most pressing problems.
Australia is a wealthy country, where 60% of people donate to charity. This puts Australians in an excellent position to improve the lives of others. However, most of that money is spent domestically, and only a small fraction on the world's most effective charities.
Effective Altruism Australia (EAA) helps Australians discover ways of making their time and money go further, and provides them with a community of like-minded people trying to do the same.
EAA makes it easier for Australians to donate to the world's most effective charities by partnering with those charities and regranting to them. It maintains best-practice transparency and integrity processes so Australians can donate to those charities with confidence.
We previously included Effective Altruism Australia as one of our recommended charities because the impact-focused evaluator Founders Pledge conducted a report on giving multipliers as a high-impact cause area, and found that EAA was highly cost-effective (though the complete analysis has not been published). Founders Pledge also provided two grants to EAA: one for $50,000 USD and one for €78,000. We’ve since updated our recommendations to reflect only organisations recommended by evaluators we’ve looked into as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations; while we expect to soon look into Founders Pledge as part of this more in-depth evaluator research, we haven’t yet. As such, we don't currently include Effective Altruism Australia as one of our recommended programs Effective Altruism Australia but you can still donate to it via our donation platform.
On a separate note, there are several potential conflicts of interest we would like to highlight here, which we also share on our transparency page:
