We enable donors from Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands to simply and safely support effective charities all over the world. We regularly award grants to partner organizations in the effective altruism movement, most of which operate in the United States. By specifying a desired purpose when making a donation to EAF below, donors can also claim their support for these organizations for tax purposes, even if they are not residents of the same country as the charity.

These partner organizations work in different cause areas. Here is a full list of all projects that we support with regular grants:

  • 80,000 Hours

Except for low payment provider fees, over which we have no influence, we provide this service and all the necessary infrastructure (e.g. legal security and donations processing) free of charge. We believe that this is a cost-effective way to increase donations to the world’s best charities. It’s very important for some donors to be able to claim donations for tax purposes. Without this service, the money would not be donated at all or given to less effective organizations. Even if the donors would have donated in any case, it is likely they would have given less.

The minimum donation amounts help us reduce the overhead involved in processing donations. We recommend donating smaller amounts directly to the projects.
