VC for Charity

We back individuals, projects, and startups working on high-impact initiatives, using the principles of effective altruism to maximize our impact

Submit a Grant Request

Any person, project, or startup can apply for a grant. All grants are unconditional and equity free. Grants can be private, anonymously listed on our site, or publicly listed on our site for external donors to evaluate. Preference is given to members of the effective altruism community.

Apply to Evaluate Grants

A grant evaluator can recommend grants from our central fund. A grant evaluator can also give grants from their personal funds, in effect acting as both an evaluator and a donor. Donations to our central fund can be optionally earmarked for specific grant evaluators to give out.
