The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a GiveWell Incubation Grant of $10,000 to Nick Otis to support forecasting work relevant to GiveWell’s top charities. While we use “grant” here for simplicity, the funding was via a contractor agreement. While we do not typically publish pages for contractor agreements, we chose to write about this funding because we view it as conceptually similar to an ordinary grant. GiveWell Incubation Grants are recommended by GiveWell staff, and support the development of potential future top charities.
See GiveWell’s page on this grant for more details.
