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).
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".
