Grant investigator: Committee for Effective Altruism Support

This page was reviewed but not written by the grant investigator. University of Oxford staff also reviewed this page prior to publication.

Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $776,271 to the University of Oxford and the Centre for Effective Altruism to support a new office CEA will share with the Forethought Foundation, the Future of Humanity Institute, and the Global Priorities Institute.

This follows previous grants to three of the organizations who will share the new office. 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 reviewing the grant proposal.
