Community infrastructure refers to potential and current community-wide products, tools, services or mechanisms that enable intra-community coordination.

This can include:

  • building tools or websites such as wikis, forums, tools, and platforms
  • offering cross-cutting services like shared services to EA organizations
  • offline events such as conferences, community houses, and regional networks
  • coordination tools such as donor lotteries

Some community infrastructure may be limited to certain subgroups, such as events and services for leaders but still provide benefits to the wider community.

Examples include: EA Forum, EA Funds, EA Hub, EA Global conferences, Project incubation (e.g. Charity Entrepreneurship) and the international EA event calendar.

This is intended to be for infrastructure that serve the specific needs of the EA movement.
