Do you like this initiative, and want to see it continue for longer, on a more stable footing, and at a bigger scale? Do you want to cheaply buy time spent working full time on work relating to EA, whilst simultaneously facilitating a thriving EA community hub? Then we would like to ask for your support.
With pledged funding, our runway currently extends to ~Feb. We are seeking funds to extend our runway to mid-2020 (we will likely run another fundraiser in Dec 2019). This corresponds to a target of £65,000. Our progress (as of Aug 1st) is shown in the chart to the left. Note that all funds raised in this fundraiser have been put towards costs for the second year of operation. Founder Greg Colbourn has covered the first year (ending 13/5/18).
To donate, please see our GoFundMe, or use our PayPal MoneyPool.
If you’d like to give regular support, we also have a Patreon.
Contact us to donate directly via bank transfer and save 3-5%+ in fees/currency conversion.
For an added bonus equivalent to tax deductibility, we are on Effective Altruist Donation Swap (in the Meta section). It should be possible to get your donation swapped with someone from a country that doesn’t offer tax deductibility to any charity.
