The FTX Foundation is a non-profit organization funded by FTX, a cryptocurrency derivatives exchange founded by Sam Bankman-Fried.

Projects

In July 2021, FTX Foundation launched FTX Climate, an initiative to make FTX carbon-neutral by the end of 2021; to fund promising research on climate change; and to support various other climate-related projects.[1][2] In late October 2021, FTX Foundation announced a fellowship program to support individuals working on high-impact projects and to build an effective altruism community in the Bahamas, where FTX is headquartered.[3]

The Future Fund, a philanthropic fund that makes grants and investments to ambitious projects focused on improving humanity's long-term prospects, was launched in late February 2022. That month, the FTX Foundation also launched FTX Community, focused on global poverty, animal welfare, and community outreach.
