The Science Philanthropy Alliance announced that the Open Philanthropy Project has joined as an associate member.
The Open Philanthropy Project identifies outstanding giving opportunities, makes grants, follows the results, and publishes its findings. Its mission is to give as effectively as it can and share the findings openly so that anyone can build on them. The Open Philanthropy Project’s main funders are Dustin Moskowitz and Cari Tuna, signatories of the Giving Pledge.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Open Philanthropy Project to the Alliance community, and look forward to our continued work with their science team to learn and share effective ways to give to basic scientific research,” said Marc Kastner, president of the Science Philanthropy Alliance.
The mission of Science Philanthropy Alliance is to increase philanthropic support for basic scientific research. The Alliance accomplishes this by providing advice and learning opportunities for individual philanthropists and foundation staffs on how to support basic research most effectively.
