Effective Altruism Foundation

Effective Altruism Foundation (formerly GBS Switzerland) is a Swiss EA organisation. It provides a network of people interested in or committed to EA and organises networking meetups and camps, as well as career consulting to effective altruists.

EAF has launched a variety of projects, including:

  • Raising for Effective Giving (REG): The world's best poker players pledge to give 2% of their gross poker winnings to effective charities quarterly. The team includes the most famous female poker player, Liv Boeree, and several other "super high rollers".
  • Sentience Politics: Sentience Politics campaigns for the welfare of all sentient beings at the political level. It is currently running political initiatives for more veg options in public canteens in Switzerland’s direct democracy.
  • Crucial Considerations (Blog): A blog which investigates the best ways to reduce suffering in humanity’s future. It provides a general introduction to topics at the intersection of science and ethics. 
  • Outreach in the German-speaking area: EAF supports local chapters across Germany, Switzerland and Austria and promotes EA in those countries.
