It's probably best to open one tab, do the CAPTCHA, and then open the rest of the tabs so you don't have to repeat the CAPTCHA. (Credit to Michael; I have no idea how to link to users.)

Institutions for Future Generations

Not my idea, but any fund that invests money to be dispersed by future generations, e.g. https://www.overcomingbias.com/2018/04/why-dont-we-help-future.html

EA Hotel Fundraiser 5: Out of runway!

I also made a similarly sized donation.

I guess the question could remain where the extra £700/month came from.
