The guiding principle for philanthropy: Has Effective Altruism found the answer?
30th April 2019
We are delighted to invite you to to a panel discussion to explore, debate and reflect on the Effective Altruism Movement.
Effective Altruism is a philosophy and social movement that uses evidence and reasoning to determine the most effective ways to benefit others. Having gained wider traction in global philanthropy, donors are increasingly applying these principles to their giving.
Prism wants to consider what this means for the philanthropy sector and Effective Altruism can, and if it should, be used as a guiding principle for philanthropy.
