What we’re about

Welcome to Effective Altruism Bay Area!

We are the local chapter of a global community of people trying to do as much good as possible. 

Effective altruists combine the head and the heart. The heart motivates us to be empathetic and altruistic towards others, while the head makes sure that what we do is effective and well-directed. 

We ask questions such as: Where should we devote our time and money? Which causes will have the greatest impact on the world? Which careers do the most good? 

We cross-post events here from the Bay Area EA Facebook group and related organizations. Please suggest or host your own events. This community is only as active as its members want it to be.
