Donations 2018

Each year I do the majority of my Charity donations in early December (just after my birthday) spread over a few days (so as not to get my credit card suspended).

I also blog about it to hopefully inspire others. See: 2017, 2016, 2015

All amounts this year are in $US

My main donations was to Givewell (to allocate to projects as they prioritize). I’m happy that they are are making efficient uses of donations.

I gave some money to the Software Conservancy to allocate across the projects (mostly open source software) they support and also to Mozilla to support the Firefox browser (which I use) and other projects.

Next were three advocacy and infrastructure projects.

and finally I gave some money to a couple of outlets whose content I consume. Signum University produce various education material around science-fiction, fantasy and medieval literature. In my case I’m following their lectures on Youtube about the Lord of the Rings. The West Wing Weekly is a podcast doing a episode-by-episode review of the TV series The West Wing.
