80,000 Hours

You can also use any option to make a donation to 80,000 Hours, which CEA fiscally sponsors. If you are using a payment method other than Credit/Debit Card, please email development [at] centreforeffectivealtruism [dot] org with the amount you have donated, otherwise your donation will be allocated to CEA's unrestricted funds.

We are a registered, tax-exempt non-profit with 501(c)(3) status in the USA (EIN 47-1988398). This means we can accept tax-deductible donations from the USA for both our US and non US-based projects.

If you indicate that you are a US taxpayer, we will issue an IRS-compliant receipt and send you a copy of our IRS determination letter upon request.

You can also send donations up to $2500 via email or text message if you bank with Chase, Bank of America, CapitalOne, FirstBank or Wells Fargo, just enter "Centre for Effective Altruism USA Inc" as the recipient name and use tara[at] as the email address (please note that both our account name and the email address use the British spelling of "centre")
