Effec­tive Altru­ism Funds

TagLast edit: 11 Jan 2022 21:30 UTC by Pablo

Effective Altruism Funds (often called EA Funds) are expert-managed, cause-specific pools of funds for regranting. This structure allows small and large donors to efficiently delegate their charitable decision-making to central fund managers. Since the EA Funds sometimes support small, speculative, or individual projects that would not normally qualify for tax deductions, this can also be tax-efficient, as donations to EA Funds are deductible in some jurisdictions.

EA Funds is a spin-off of the Centre for Effective Altruism. Currently, four Funds exist:

  1. Global Health and Development

  2. Animal Welfare

  3. Long-Term Future

  4. Effective Altruism Infrastructure
