Less Wrong is a community blog devoted to refining the art of human rationality. Please visit our About page for more information.
Charity Science is looking for $35,000 to fund our 2015 operations. We fundraise for GiveWell-recommended charities, and over 2014 we moved over $150,000 to them that wouldn’t have been given otherwise: that’s $9 for every $1 we spent. We can’t do this work without your support, so please consider making a donation to us - however small, it will be appreciated. Donate now and you’ll also be matched by Matt Wage.
The donations pages below list other reasons to donate to us, which include:
- Our costs are extremely low: the $35,000 CAD pays for three to four full-time staff.
- We experiment with many different forms of fundraising and record detailed information on how these experiments go, so funding us lets the whole EA community learn about their prospects.
- We carefully track how much money each experiment raises, subtract money which would have been given anyway, and shut down experiments that don’t work.
- Our fundraising still has many opportunities to continue to scale as we try new ideas we haven’t tested yet.
There’s much more information, including our full budget and what we’d do if we raised over $35,000, in the linked document, and we’d be happy to answer any questions. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
