Effec­tive al­tru­ism funding

TagLast edit: 13 May 2021 15:57 UTC by Pablo

Posts with the effective altruism funding tag discuss EA funding networks, the availability of funds for different cause areas, grantmaking strategy, etc.

Not meant for posts that discuss specific funding decisions (for that, use the “Donation Writeup” tag).

Examples of EA funders includes: EA Funds, Open Philanthropy Project, Survival & Flourishing Fund, Founders Pledge Funds
