Support From the Centre for Effective Altruism

The Centre for Effective Altruism is able to provide support for effective altruism groups, including advice, funding, and some technical support.

If you are thinking about starting a group, please contact CEA’s Groups Team via groups@centreforeffectivealtruism.org to get all the information you need, and to arrange a call.

We advise group organisers about

  • Group strategy

  • Specific projects your group is planning

  • Challenges your group is facing, and

  • Opportunities for funding.

Julia from CEA’s Community Health Team is available to help with any community concerns. Julia can be contacted at julia@centreforeffectivealtruism.org. You can also make time to talk to Julia during her office hours.

The EA Global Team also has a Youtube playlist with advice for group organisers that you can access here.

EA Groups Newsletter

CEA sends out a monthly EA Groups newsletter. We recommend you sign up here. You can read some of the previous groups newsletters here.

Connect with Other Organisers

The EA Groups Slack workspace is a great place to ask questions about EA community building. Email groups@centreforeffectivealtruism.org to get added to the Slack. The EA Group Organizers Facebook group is also a place to ask questions.

Here are some ways to find other groups to ask if they’d be willing to give you a hand:

If you are running a university group, it’s also a good idea to talk to some organisers of other clubs at your university. They might be able to give you a sense of how to navigate policies, publicise events, and tailor general club-running advice to your university in particular.
