The Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) is an effective altruist hub that runs and supports projects that promote effective altruism ideas and aims. Our vision is an optimal world. Our mission is to create a global community of people who have made helping others a core part of their lives, and who use evidence and scientific reasoning to figure out how to do so as effectively as possible. By default, donations will be unrestricted and may be allocated at the Centre for Effective Altruism’s discretion to any of its four EA funds or to its operational costs. If you would like your donation earmarked for a specific fund, please fill out this form AFTER you make your donation.
Who We Are
The Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) acts as a springboard for the effective altruism community. It aims to:
- promote and strengthen effective altruism as an idea and a community,
- help figure out how best to advance the wellbeing of all, and
- inspire people to take action based on that knowledge.
The Centre for Effective Altruism helps to grow and maintain the effective altruism movement. It is a growing coalition of projects that put ideas into practice. Our current projects include Giving What We Can, 80,000 Hours and Global Priorities Project. The Centre is also piloting new projects, which may go on to form their own organisations if they are successful. The Life You Can Save and Animal Charity Evaluators were originally incubated as part of CEA and now operate independently in the US. The CEA is based at its offices in the University of Oxford and in Berkeley, CA, USA.
