What is CEA?

The Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) is a charity dedicated to building and nurturing a global community of people who are thinking carefully about the world’s biggest problems and taking impactful action to solve them.

We hope that this community can help to build a radically better world: by connecting students and young professionals with relevant experts, we can help them consider their values and find an effective way to contribute that is a good fit for their skills and inclinations.

We do this by...

We also produce the Effective Altruism Newsletter, which goes out to more than 50,000 subscribers, and run effectivealtruism.org, which hosts a collection of useful resources.

CEA is an Effective Ventures project. Effective Ventures Foundation (UK) (EV UK) is a charity in England and Wales (and is also a Netherlands registered tax-deductible entity). Effective Ventures Foundation USA Inc. (EV US) is a section 501(c)(3) organization in the USA. EV UK and EV US are separate charities that collaborate closely under the “Effective Ventures” name.

To make matters even more complicated, until recently EV UK and EV US were also known as CEA and CEA US — that confusion is why EV changed its name.
