The Effective Altruism Forum (often spelled EA Forum) is a community blog and forum focused on discussion of issues related to effective altruism. It is supported by the Centre for Effective Altruism.


The EA Forum was launched in 2014, with seed content from a group blog that ran between 2012 and 2014, and published posts by early members of the effective altruism community.[1][2] It was relaunched in 2018 with a new codebase and a dedicated team.[3]
