Effective Giving

Did you know that some charities are hundreds of times more effective than others when reducing suffering in the world? We try to maximize expected value when reducing the suffering in the world.

Rationality

We think rationally about global challenges and collaborate with researchers, think tanks and charity evaluators. Overcoming our biases helps us see the world in an undistorted way – crucially including the ways in which the greatest number of individuals can be helped with charitable budget.

Movement Building

We leverage our impact by building a movement of poker players all around the world. The REG community offers get-togethers and workshops in order to exchange thoughts on donation strategies and effectiveness. We’d love to see you join!
