CEA’s 2017 Review and 2018 Plans

This has been a big year for CEA. We launched EA Grants which funded 21 projects in the EA community; we created a new donation platform called EA Funds to help people donate more effectively; and we ran 3 EA Global conferences to bring the community together. In this post we share what the Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) has been doing this year, and give you a taste of the things we will be working on in 2018.

What CEA is currently focusing on and why

CEA is ultimately striving to help create an optimal world. We currently believe that building and strengthening the effective altruism community is one of the best ways we can both build our understanding of how to do the most good, and grow the total amount of concrete progress we make towards those goals as a community. This blog post gives more background on our current vision and mission, discusses how we currently prioritise and review projects and summarises our Q2 objectives.
