The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,032,947 over two years to Founders Pledge, executed through the Center for Effective Altruism, for general support. Founders Pledge is a new organization, based in London, that encourages technology entrepreneurs to pledge at least 2% of their proceeds upon exit to charity, and supports them in making thoughtful and impactful decisions about where to give. This grant is intended to enable Founders Pledge to expand to Germany, France, and Sweden, and to hire a developer.
