Forethought Foundation for Global Priorities Research

Director

The Forethought Foundation for Global Priorities Research aims to promote academic work that addresses the question of how to use our scarce resources to improve the world by as much as possible.

The Forethought Foundation is especially interested in the idea that the primary determinant of the value of our actions today is how those actions influence the very long-run future.

Giving What We Can

Co-founder

Giving What We Can is a community creating a culture of giving more, and giving more effectively. Our members come from many different walks of life, but are united in a desire to do something about the world's most pressing problems. We see that our comparative wealth can prevent a significant amount of suffering if only we allow it to do so, and thus we have each taken the Pledge to Give: we will give at least 10% of our incomes to wherever we think it will do the most to improve the lives of others
