2020/21 Fundraiser

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 education and research relating to EA, whilst simultaneously facilitating a thriving EA community hub? Then we would like to ask for your support.

With current funding our runway extends to ~June 2021. We are seeking funds to extend our runway into 2022. Our costs are ~£3-6k/month depending on occupancy. Note that all funds raised so far have been put towards costs from 14th May 2019 onward. Founder Greg Colbourn covered the first year (ending 13th May 2019).

To donate, please or use our PayPal MoneyPool (0% fees, ~2% currency conversion losses) or GoFundMe (2.9% fees). If you’d like to give regular support, we are in the process of setting up a Ko-Fi (0% fees, ~2% currency conversion losses). Contact us to donate directly via bank transfer and save in fees/currency conversion (Revolut and Transferwise are good options with 0-1% losses in fees and currency exchange). Or, you can..

As a registered charity in England and Wales (no. 1189768), donations to us are tax deductible as of June 3rd 2020.
