I tried emailing Protege BR 2 days ago (I followed the instructions above and included Ian David Moss in the email) and later received an 'undeliverable' notification for info@protegebr.org. Not sure whether they're still active or accepting donations (at least from international donors). I'd be grateful for any guidance regarding helping out the situation specifically in Brazil, but otherwise I'm considering donating to Open Source Medical Supplies instead. Any thoughts are appreciated.



I'm new to effective altruism, and also to online forums in general. I'm interested in philanthropy, charity, altruism, and more generally, giving. Regarding personal or biographical information, if it's okay I would prefer to remain anonymous. Nonetheless I would love to have the opportunity to potentially become part of the community.

If possible I would like some guidance as to the right organisations to donate money to. I hope this is the right place to post this (if not, perhaps I could be pointed in the right direction?). I hope my post is not too detailed! I have chosen this forum to ask this question because I am particularly interested in effective altruism.

I would like to give money to between 1 and 4+ organisations. I've researched the topic and am considering EA's Global Health and Development Fund; the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN); the Fistula Foundation; and ChildFund. I am also strongly considering giving money in order to attempt to help the COVID-19 crisis; and to attempt to help the global warming situation (especially in Africa). I'm considering other organisations and causes, but so far these are the primary ones.

Perhaps I could learn your perspective(s) regarding this. Again, if this is not the place to ask this question, perhaps I could learn where that place may be. Regardless, effective altruism has appealed to me for a long time and I would love to have the opportunity to become part of the community in some way.

Thanks a lot!
