Note: This page was created using content published by Good Ventures and GiveWell, the organizations that created the Open Philanthropy Project, before this website was launched. Uses of “we” and “our” on this page may therefore refer to Good Ventures or GiveWell, but they still represent the work of the Open Philanthropy Project.

Good Ventures awarded a grant of $100,000 to the US Cochrane Center (USCC) for general operating support. We made this grant based on GiveWell’s recommendation after it learned that USCC had an urgent need for funding to maintain uninterrupted, minimal staffing. Learn more about our rationale for awarding this grant and why we believe meta-research is a promising philanthropic cause.

This award is a “learning grant,” meaning that it’s designed to help us learn more about an organization or cause we find promising. This grant is unrestricted so that the organization can decide for itself how best to translate the funds into impact.
