Conflicts of Interest

Relationship with the Effective Altruism Foundation

REG was co-founded by the the Effective Altruism Foundation (EAF) in cooperation with leading poker players. REG has since remained part of EAF and is not an independent legal entity. Therefore, all team members of REG are formally employed by EAF and all donations are processed by EAF. Donations to REG itself are in the form of restricted donations to EAF that may only be used to cover REGs expenses.

Relationship with the Foundational Research Institute

The Effective Altruism Foundation also incubated the Foundational Research Institute (FRI), now the Center on Long-Term Risk (CLR). It is a research organization exploring ways to reduce suffering in the long-term future. We have sometimes raised funds for the then Foundational Research Institute.
