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

Good Ventures, with input from GiveWell, awarded a grant of $2,642,300 to Evidence Action as part of GiveWell’s Incubation Grants to support the development of potential future top charities and improve the quality of GiveWell’s recommendations. The grant is intended to strengthen Evidence Action’s operations, including its financial systems, human resources, and information technology.

Evidence Action is an organization that takes evidence-backed development interventions to scale, working to turn successful trials into sustainable large-scale organizations. We made this grant with two goals in mind: (a) to support the development of programs that could be future top charities (the goal of GiveWell’s Incubation Grants program), and (b) to support the Deworm the World Initiative, a program run by Evidence Action that is one of GiveWell’s top charities.

See GiveWell’s page on this grant for more details.
