I'm interested in hearing how the fundraising drive went and what the current situation of EA London is?


A short review of the Effect Foundation in 2017

The Effect Foundation (Stiftelsen Effekt in Norwegian) is an EA non-profit dedicated to promote and fundraise in Norway to GiveWell recommended charities. It started operations in mid-2016 and have raised about $ 360 000 (NOK 2 800 000) to date. The author of this post was one of the main... Read More

Project Report - On the Potential of Norwegian CSR-donations to Effective Charities

Pre-script Postet on behalf of Bruno and Eirin since they lack the necessary karma. I'm managing director of Stiftelsen Effekt and was part of the steering committee.

Reorganizing EA NTNU into agile self-organizing teams

In this post we try to share our experience in reorganizing our EA student group. We think that our analysis of pitfalls and bottlenecks in a student organization and how we are trying to circumvent them could be valuable to read by EAs involved with other student groups.   EA... Read More

I would love to see more of the same kind of overview for other careers like computer science, consulting and economics. 80.000 hours should consider integrating such concrete, practical guides for choosing sub-fields.

In order to be eligible for tax deduction you mean? No, they have to be registered inside the EEA, though.

EA-commercials on national TV in Norway - for free!

TL;DR: Norwegian TV channels have to send informational videos from non-profits instead of regular commercials 4 days a year. The only important requirement is quality, which judging by the current videos, is set at a reachable level. We need input and people who can contribute with time, skills and/or funding.   Background... Read More
