Effective Altruism Funds

Effective Altruism Funds (often called EA Funds) are expert-managed, cause-specific pools of small-donor funds for regranting. This structure allows small-dollar donors to efficiently delegate their charitable decisionmaking to central fund managers. Since the EA Funds sometimes support small, speculative, or individual projects that would not normally qualify for tax deductions, this can also be tax-efficient, as donations to EA Funds are deductible in some jurisdictions.

EA Funds is a project of the Centre for Effective Altruism. Currently, four EA Funds exist:

  1. Global Health and Development
  2. Animal Welfare
  3. Long-Term Future
  4. EA Infrastructure
