EA Donation Registry

To inspire and motivate others and show the dedication of and total committed by the effective altruist community, this page features a registry of past and planned donations. If you're currently planning to donate to a particular cause or have made past donations, we (and many others, from ACE to MIRI) encourage you to share them to help do this. These plans need not be as certain as pledges - donors can revoke them at any time, and it'd be both expected and understood that many will do so.
