EA groups are places for people to learn about effective altruism, and to be part of a community of like-minded individuals applying EA principles to their lives.
This page outlines the main types of support available to EA groups.
The EA Resource Hub is the main collection of resources for local group organisers; it includes resources for running events, editable graphics, and an updated “pitch” guide. There is also content of interest to all EAs, including reading lists, links for donors, a compendium of EA Facebook groups, and much more. The collection is community-created and continually evolving.
- Connect with other group organisers on the Effective Altruism Group Organizers Facebook Group
- Join the group organiser Slack Workspace
- Attend the group organiser meetups, which are advertised on the Slack and Facebook group. There are group organiser meetups at EA Global and EAGx conferences, and online meetups are organised regularly.
The team is also available to advise group organisers about
- Group strategy
- Specific projects your group is planning
- Challenges your group is facing
- Opportunities for funding.
Julia and Sky from CEA’s Community Health Team are available to help with any community concerns. Julia can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and Sky at email@example.com. You can also make a time to talk to Julia during her office hours.
Group Support Funding provides funds to allow EA groups to run specific projects (such as retreats or fellowships) or general funding to cover the group’s operating expenses, such as room booking, advertising costs, and food at events.
Through Community Building Grants, we provide funding for individuals and groups to work on effective altruism community building. Grants are typically between 5000 USD and 100,000 USD per year.
