Thanks for the post!

Lewis Bollard gave away 180k but Nick Beckstead says he only had access to 14k. Was this due to a spike in donations to the far future cause after they made their recommendations?

Nick's recommendation came much sooner after launch than Lewis's, so Nick had much less money available at the time.
