Skepticism about Doing Good: Effective Altruism & Starting Evidence-based C

November 19, 2016, 12:30pm - November 19, 2016, 3:00pm

Where should I donate to charity? How do I know if a charity is effective? These are questions at the heart of effective altruism, which is premised on doing the most good you can. These are also ideas that should be central in the creation of any new charity and yet only a couple of evidence-based direct charities have ever been founded with the explicit goal of doing the most good they can. The talk will give an overview of the principles of effective altruism and give an inside look into the research and considerations that go into the creation of an evidence-based charity. About our speaker: Marcus is one of the founding members of the team at Charity Science which did 6 months of research on starting an effective charity before launching Charity Science: Health, which is project focused on sending text message reminders for vaccinations. Before joining Charity Science, he volunteered for several effective altruism projects and was a regular at Chicago Skeptics events. You can find out more about Charity Science: Health at www.charitysciencehealth.com
