In light of this, it's interesting  to look back at the March 2021 post by Applied Divinity Studies "Why Hasn't Effective Altruism Grown Since 2015?" The post (reasonably enough) used money moved as a key metric of EA growth, and argued that EA as a movement had been stagnating. The massive increase in EA-aligned funds in the past couple years would seem to suggest otherwise.

 (See also the discussion in GiveWell's 2021 year-end report, which noted: "In 2021, GiveWell continued to enjoy a huge amount of growth in the funds we were able to raise. Overall, our funds raised grew by over 100%, from $293 million in 2020 to $595 million in 2021—the largest absolute increase in funding we've ever experienced.")
