Effec­tive al­tru­ism funding

TagLast edit: 1 Aug 2021 10:23 UTC by Leo

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
