CEA is Fundraising for 2019

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.

CEA's Response to the Typeform Data Breach

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.

A contact person for the EA community

I work at the Centre for Effective Altruism as the Community Liaison, which includes being a point person for the EA community. I’m a person you can come to with concerns about problems you’ve noticed or experienced in the EA community.

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.

Changes to the EA Forum

Over the last several years, the EA Forum has been run on a volunteer-led basis. Given how much the EA community has grown, the volunteers who have been running the Forum have decided to transition primary responsibility for the EA Forum to the Centre for Effective Altruism. In practice, this should mean that things run much as they have done, but means that volunteers no longer have to be responsible for coordinating the technical maintenance of the Forum.

Advisory panel at CEA

CEA has put together a small advisory panel to help us think through decisions we make. We want to get input from people who have different viewpoints from our staff and can provide us with an outside view.
