Give as a community

When we give together, we can coordinate to find the best opportunities.

Using EA Funds, you can pool your donations with other donors within our four major cause areas.
Experts in that cause area will grant funds to the best giving opportunities.
This helps us to fund excellent giving opportunities together as a community.
