Jack Cunningham

I teach a high school philosophy class, which includes a unit on ethics, meaning that I get to teach my high school students about Effective Altruism.

I'm interested in transitioning my career to a more effective direction. Applied research at an org like Open Phil or Founder's Pledge would be ideal. The causes I'm into currently are existential risk (of course), farm animal welfare, and land use policy.

I donated a kidney altruistically in April 2020.

The charities I donate to regularly include GiveWell's Maximum Impact Fund and the Clean Air Task Force. I've taken the Giving What We Can pledge.

Sometimes I write things down here: ordinaryevents.substack.com

I realize this is a general question; you can answer in general terms, or specify per role.
