“As an academic with some experience in Registered Reports and a good view on the open science movement, I empathically think you should fund Prof. Chambers. I cannot think of a more efficient way to spend your money if you want to contribute to better science at this moment.”

“I think the Let’s Fund research on climate change is excellent. I did a Cambridge PhD in physics, then spent five years on climate change work (with the UK government and then as an outside campaigner). I thoroughly agree with the proposition that support for technological innovation is under-prioritised.”
Dr Matthew Brown
What is Let’s Fund?
We look for high-risk, high-reward charitable opportunities that are in need of funding.
We believe that donors should be less risk-averse when it comes to giving to charity, and want to curate and promote high-risk, high-reward charitable projects.
How does Let’s Fund differ from other charity evaluators?
Instead of directing funds to established charities with considerable room for more funding, Let’s Fund moves money to smaller, fledgling projects, especially in the research and policy space.
Put simply: we want to help you fund projects that aren’t a sure
How are the causes picked?
Our in-depth analysis is based on the principles of Effective Altruism. This means that we select causes and projects that we believe do the most good. This lets you maximize the social impact of your giving.
How do you handle donations?
We use Facebook, PayPal, and GoFundMe to collect donations – we don’t ever handle your money ourselves. In most cases, donations are fully tax-deductible.
How do you make money?
We’re independently funded, and don’t take a cut of any donations. If you believe in our vision, we’re looking for funders and also new analysts to join our team – get in touch.
