Global catastrophic risks
Our current portfolio areas are human health and wellbeing, tools and techniques, science supporting biosecurity and pandemic preparedness, transformative basic research, science policy and infrastructure, and other scientific research areas. Read more about our work in scientific research.
We have not yet identified focus areas for global health & development. Currently, the best giving opportunities we know of in this category are GiveWell’s top charities. (Read more about GiveWell’s relationship to the Open Philanthropy Project.)
We sometimes make grants in other miscellaneous categories when we come across strong giving opportunities.
