CEA had a strong year. In addition to our ongoing projects, we expanded our grantmaking operations to fund 44 projects and EA groups; we launched a new version of the EA Forum to help the community make intellectual progress; and we ran several retreats to support promising individuals who wanted to make high-impact plan changes. In this post, we give a brief summary of what we did this year and preview what we'll be working on in 2019.

Last week the Open Philanthropy Project announced a renewed grant of £2 million to the Centre for Effective Altruism.
On Monday we learnt that Typeform, a popular service we’ve used to create some of our online forms, has suffered a significant data security breach. Many users of the Centre For Effective Altruism’s online services (or projects of CEA, such as Effective Altruism Global) submitted personal data, which was among the information that was stolen from Typeform. This is a summary of CEA's response.
