Note: This grant was awarded while the Open Philanthropy Project was a partnership between GiveWell and Good Ventures.

In March 2014, Good Ventures made a $250,000 grant to Evidence Action, the parent organization of the GiveWell-recommended Deworm the World Initiative, to support its assessment of programs to consider scaling up. This grant is part of our broader plan to support the creation of new giving opportunities that meet GiveWell’s traditional criteria. See GiveWell’s writeup of this grant for more details.
