Sorry for the interruption!

This is the new version of the EA Funds website. If you've got any feedback or suggestions for how we can make it better, we'd love to hear it – feedback helps us improve.

EA Funds Donor Lottery

The EA Funds Donor Lottery is a novel way to donate. Instead of simply donating to a particular charity (or to one of our funds), you make a donation into a very large pot of money, for a chance to win the right to donate the whole pot.

Your chance of winning is proportional to the size of your donation. So, if the pot was worth $100,000, and you entered with at $1,000 donation, you would have a 1% chance of winning.

EA Funds runs the donor lottery at least once a year, typically around the December Giving Season. Past winners have granted more than half a million dollars to projects that they thought would have the greatest chance of having a positive impact.

We're still in the process of moving this functionality to our new website. In the meantime, you can read a bit more about donor lotteries on our blog. If it would be useful for you to have access to the historical data from past donor lotteries, please get in touch.
