Cause area: Multiple cause areas
Charity Entrepreneurship is a research and training programme that incubates multiple effective charities annually.
Only a small number of nonprofits are founded based on rigorous evidence and research. As a result, many problems go unidentified and unaddressed, and many talented individuals lack high-impact career opportunities.
Charity Entrepreneurship aims to strengthen the NGO sector by launching multiple new charities annually based on effective altruist principles.
It achieves this through an extensive research process that identifies high-impact, evidence-based ways to reduce suffering and a cost-covered Incubation Program that helps aspiring entrepreneurs launch these interventions. Its focus areas include health and development policy, mental health, family planning, and animal advocacy, and EA meta.
How it works:
As of 2022, Charity Entrepreneurship has helped to launch 23 charities. These charities have already fundraised over $20 million USD and been recognised by top grantmakers like GiveWell, EA Funds, and Open Philanthropy. For example:
