We run regular events (mostly online) where you can meet people in the Giving What We Can community from around the world, hear what's going on, discuss effective giving, and more.
Giving What We Can helped establish the effective altruism community, which now has groups all over the world. These groups discuss topics and work on projects related to effective giving, high-impact careers, and more. They can be a great place to meet Giving What We Can members and other people interested in doing good better.
Help us spread the word about giving more and giving more effectively. Talking to friends or family about these topics may be one of the best ways to help; advocating for effective giving multiplies your impact!
Our blog features the latest news from our community, updates on charity evaluations, member stories, and helpful information on effective giving.
