How do the Funds work?

EA Funds allow you to make tax-efficient donations, which are then pooled together with other donations for regranting to organizations and projects with high expected impact.

You can select one of four Funds to support. Each Fund is focused on a particular cause area, and is managed by a team of managers who decide how much funding goes to each of their chosen opportunities.

The current Funds are Global Health and Development, Animal Welfare, Long-Term Future and Effective Altruism Infrastructure. You can read more about each of these areas on their respective pages.

The money you donate to a Fund will be held by CEA until the team of Fund managers is ready to regrant it. Once the Fund managers have decided where to donate, they will write up their research and thoughts on our site for anyone who wants to read them.
