2019-Q4 grant round
SFF had finalized most of its grant decisions for 2019-Q4: SFF-2019-Q4 S-process Recommendations Announcement
The total funding distributed will be around $2MM, at the high end of our expected $1MM-$2MM estimate. We are considering running another similar grant round in Q2, Q3, or Q4 of 2020, but this decision has not been finalized.
Survivalandflourishing.fund is a website maintained by the Fund Advisors of the Survival and Flourishing Fund (SFF), a Donor Advised Fund held at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
Our goal is to bring financial support to organizations working to improve humanity’s long-term prospects for survival and flourishing. We use this website to host announcements about our plans to investigate grant-making opportunities.
SFF was initially funded in 2019 by a grant of approximately $2 million from the Organizational Grants Program of the Berkeley Existential Risk Initiative (BERI), which in turn was funded by donations from philanthropist Jaan Tallinn.
