Grant investigator: Committee for Effective Altruism Support

This page was reviewed but not written by members of the committee. CEA staff also reviewed this page prior to publication.

Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $4,146,795 to the Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) for general support and community-building grants. CEA is a central organization within the effective altruism (EA) community that engages in a variety of activities aimed at helping the EA community.

This grant follows our September 2019 support and falls under our work aimed at growing and empowering the EA community. While we see the basic pros and cons of this support similarly to what we’ve presented in past writeups on the matter, our ultimate grant figure was set by the aggregated judgments of our committee for effective altruism support, described in more detail here.
