The inaugural event of the GWWC Toronto chapter! CSI Annex Front Porch!

Hey CSI!

As some of you may know, I have been getting involved with the Effective Altruism movement over the last couple of years. To this end, I have taken on the role of running a Giveing What We Can Group in Toronto.

Giving What We Can (GWWC) is a global community focused on leveraging thousands of hours of research to help people decide where to donate. Their mission is to foster a culture of thoughtful giving, ensuring donations have the greatest impact on improving lives and reducing suffering worldwide, with members pledging to give a percentage of their income or wealth to high-impact causes.

I’m thrilled to invite you to the inaugural event of the GWWC Toronto chapter! It’s happening on March 12th, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm (GMT-5), at the Centre for Social Innovation Annex (720 Bathurst St, Toronto, ON M5S 2R4, Canada). We’ll be gathering in the cozy “front porch” area, right inside the front doors.

This is more than just a meetup – it’s the beginning of something bigger in our city. As the organizer of GWWC Toronto, I’m excited to meet fellow donors, pledgers, and anyone curious about effective altruism. It’s a chance for us all to mingle, chat and ask questions. I am also actively looking for input into what kinds of events to run in 2024; I have many ideas but want to ensure they appeal to the people interested in attending!

Mark your calendars: March 12th, 6:30pm-8pm (GMT-5)

Our spot: Centre for Social Innovation Annex, “front porch” area


We endorse Giving What We Can’s code of conduct at all events:

I can’t wait to see you there and kickstart our journey of impactful giving in Toronto!

Feel free to contact me directly if you have questions or suggestions!


Have a great day!
