Hi, I'm Natalie Cargill, Founder & CEO of Effective Giving. We are a research and advisory non-profit that supports donors who want to maximise their positive impact on the world. We work closely with researchers at the University of Oxford, and are currently advising the UK's youngest self-made billionaire on his philanthropy.
Our work is informed by the intellectual and practical project of effective altruism: The use of evidence and careful reasoning to identify the most promising solutions to the world's most pressing problems. In particular, I consider a central moral concern of our time to be the way in which our actions today affect future generations. This TED talk is a good introduction as to why.
