Survival and Flourishing Fund grant applications open until October 4th ($1MM-$2MM planned for dispersal)

The Sur­vival and Flour­ish­ing Fund is a new fund that (as I un­der­stand it) is tak­ing over a sig­nifi­cant chunk of the Berkeley Ex­is­ten­tial Risk Ini­ti­a­tive’s (BERI) grant­mak­ing, and is just open­ing a new grant round that I am helping to dis­burse:


The plan is to make a to­tal of $1MM-$2MM in grants to or­ga­ni­za­tions work­ing on the long term flour­ish­ing and sur­vival of hu­man­ity.

At this point in time SFF can only make grants to char­i­ties and not in­di­vi­d­u­als, so if you have a pro­ject or or­ga­ni­za­tion that you want to get fund­ing for, you will have to ei­ther already be part of an es­tab­lished char­ity, found one, or be spon­sored by an ex­ist­ing char­ity.

Also happy to an­swer any ques­tions you have in the com­ments, to the best of my knowl­edge.
