We previously included the Effective Altruism Infrastructure Fund on our list of recommendations because it is managed by the impact-focused grantmaker Effective Altruism Funds. We’ve since updated our recommendations to reflect only funds managed by grantmakers we’ve looked into as part of our 2023 evaluator investigations; while we’ve looked into EA Funds in its capacity as a grantmaker in the reducing global catastrophic risks space and the animal welfare space (and as such, we recommend the Long-Term Future Fund and the Animal Welfare Fund) we’ve yet to look into its grantmaking in other areas. As such, we don't currently include this fund as one of our recommended programs but you can still donate to it via our donation platform.
