    Effective Altruism is a growing social movement and philosophy that combines both the heart and the head: compassion guided by data and reason.

    It has never been more possible for you to have a meaningful, positive impact on a massive scale. With the rise of evidence-driven interventions, we each have an unprecedented opportunity to transform lives.

    Effective Altruism Australia exists to help your resources go further in helping others. Finding effective charities can be the difference between transforming lives and accomplishing nothing.
