Effective Altruism

Effective Altruism (EA) is a global movement made up of many organisations that advocate for funding the most cost effective, evidence-based programmes for saving and improving lives, maximising the good that can be done with donations. These organisations partner with different charities and promote the charity’s programmes on their own websites. Malaria Consortium receives donations from the following EA organisations.
