Effective-Altruism-Traders

Traders for Effective Altruism

If you are reading this chances are that you love trading as much as we do.

I have created this project with two main goals:

  1. To build a community of traders which also happen to be interested in altruism.
  2. To raise awareness about the Effective Altruism movement, the EA Funds and other EA organizations.

It is a personal project only for educational purposes and not financial advice.

How to collaborate:

  1. Donate part of your trading profits to the Effective Altruism Funds
  2. Add to your tweets the hashtag #EATraders
  3. Find Peer-to-Peer funding opportunities at our Facebook group.

What is Effective Altruism?

Effective altruism is about answering one simple question: how can we use our resources to help others the most?

Rather than just doing what feels right, EA uses evidence and careful analysis to find the very best causes to work on.

What are the Effective Altruism Funds?

The Effective Altruism Funds have been designed to help individuals give in a way that is both effective and convenient. It’s kind of like a mutual fund, but for maximizing the effectiveness of your donations, rather than your investment returns.

How can I collaborate?

You can directly donate part of your trading profits to the Effective Altruism Fund of your preference or you can support the project by simply adding to your tweets the hashtag #EATraders.

By doing so, we will be able to retweet your charts so everyone in the community can benefit from your expertise.

Who is behind this project?

I´m a 42 years old effective altruist and a trader that has chosen the option Earn to Give as a life choice. You can read more about Earn to Give here and here.

If you want to learn more, there´s a registry of my personal donations to the Against Malaria Foundation here.

Why have you chosen AMF as your main cause?

The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) is one of GiveWell´s top-rated charities and I believe that it offers donors an outstanding opportunity to accomplish good with my donations.
