CEA is launching a winter fundraising round

Over the next few weeks, the Cen­tre for Effec­tive Altru­ism will be reach­ing out to the com­mu­nity to raise funds to sup­port our next year of work.

So far, more than 300 effec­tive al­tru­ists have con­tributed to CEA. If it were not for your help, we would not have been able to cre­ate a com­mu­nity of effec­tive givers who have pledged more than half a billion dol­lars to char­ity, guide hun­dreds of grad­u­ates into ca­reers that make a differ­ence, ad­vise policy-mak­ers around the world on effec­tive policy, or sup­port the effec­tive al­tru­ist move­ment through events like EA Global. Now we need your con­tinued sup­port to help us build on that work. You can find much more de­tail in the 2015 CEA Win­ter Prospec­tus.

As a whole, CEA is com­mit­ted to mak­ing sure that effec­tive al­tru­ist ideas reach their po­ten­tial to shape the world’s fu­ture for the bet­ter. Each of the parts of CEA ad­dresses a differ­ent com­po­nent of that challenge.

  • Giv­ing What We Can sup­ports effec­tive dona­tion to charity

  • 80,000 Hours helps peo­ple lead effec­tive al­tru­ist careers

  • EA Outreach en­ables the effec­tive al­tru­ist com­mu­nity to grow healthily

  • Global Pri­ori­ties Pro­ject helps policy-mak­ers ap­ply EA ideas in their work

Sup­port­ing all of this is our op­er­a­tions team which de­liv­ers shared ser­vices that let each pro­ject fo­cus on de­liv­er­ing their core ob­jec­tives.

Each part of CEA will be rais­ing more this win­ter to help us hire great peo­ple, cover our costs for the year ahead, and make our ex­ist­ing work bet­ter and big­ger.

  • Giv­ing What We Can aims to raise £475,000 and still needs £282,000 to reach that goal.

  • 80,000 Hours aims to raise £220,000 and still needs £48,000 to reach that goal.

  • EA Outreach aims to raise £474,000 and still needs £274,000 to reach that goal.

  • Global Pri­ori­ties Pro­ject aims to raise £300,000 and still needs £160,000 to reach that goal.

  • CEA shared ser­vices aim to raise £200,000 and still need £150,000 to reach that goal.

Each or­gani­sa­tion will be com­mu­ni­cat­ing more about their plans and fund­ing needs. You can find an overview of all of our work in the 2015 CEA Win­ter Prospec­tus.
