Description
Introduction to Effective Altruism
Presenter: Eric Friedman

Though many donors approach their giving knowing that they want to focus on a certain cause or nonprofit that is close to their heart, some donors are open to any cause or charity. Effective Altruism is a growing social movement around using evidence and reason to work out how best to make the world a better place. Although there is no objective solution to this challenge, Effective Altruists differentiate themselves from other impact-focused donors by their willingness to compare very different charitable opportunities such as healthcare, education, and the environment when deciding how to give.

This presentation will answer questions including:
• What is Effective Altruism?
• What types of donors are interested in Effective Altruism?
• What is the role or personal interests and passions in Effective Altruism?
• How do Effective Altruists evaluate options for charitable giving?
• What resources are available for advisors and donors interested in learning more about Effective Altruism?

Eric Friedman is an individual donor and the author of the new book Reinventing Philanthropy: A Framework for More Effective Giving (Potomac Books, an Imprint of the University of Nebraska Press, 2013). This book is the culmination of several years trying to understand how to maximize the impact of his giving, and has received praise from a Nobel Prize winning economist, the director of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy, and several others who are well-known in the philanthropy community. In his professional life, Eric is an actuary, and he graduated from Stanford University with majors in mathematics and economics.
