EA Meta Fund AMA: 20th Dec 2018

We mean “EA meta” in the sense of EA organizations that aren’t directly attacking the object level problems (Global Poverty, Animal Welfare, GCRs, etc) but are instead attacking them in a more indirect (and hopefully more leveraged) way. Some broad categories that would count as “meta” are:

· Organizations focused on improving or growing the EA community (e.g. CEA, 80k)

· Organizations fundraising for effective causes (e.g. Founders Pledge)

· Organizations doing priorities research (e.g. GPI)

The way the EA funds partition the EA space (into Poverty/Animals/Far-Future/Meta) has actually been around for a while (for example here).

Where I'm giving and why: Will MacAskill

I like Carl's idea for the EA fund. I have some money in a DAF that I would register on an "EA fund website".
