The Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) at Oxford University has received a £2 million grant from the Open Philanthropy Project, which is funded by Facebook co-founder, Dustin Moscowitz.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of £2,000,000 ($2,688,000 at time of conversion) to the CEA for general support, stating they believe the organisation has a strong track record of helping the Effective Altruism (EA) community grow.
The grant falls under Open Philanthropy’s work in growing and empowering the EA community, following through on their plans to renew their funding after awarding a first grant to the CEA in March 2017. Funding will be used primarily to allow the CEA to hire new staff, increase staff salaries, provide additional support to local EA groups, increase its budget for EA events and conference, and partially fund EA Grants.
