The Charity Entrepreneurship (“CE”) has launched a call for applications for the 2021 Incubation Program. The two-month, cost-covered online course will take you from a basic familiarity with starting charities to being fully prepared to create and operate an effective organization.
Management, fundraising, impact analysis: everything you need to know, taught by mentors with experience establishing multiple EA charities – including a GiveWell top charity.
The next two-month Incubation Program will run from 28 June to 27 August 2021. The program will run online, so you can participate fully remotely. Depending on the Covid situation, they may also organize part of the course offline for those who are able to travel to London.
- To increase your chances, apply to start a charity based on their research. Each year our team spends thousands of hours researching potential charity ideas, building on large bodies of research by external organizations. Only the best interventions make it onto their list of top charity ideas. If you are open to multiple ideas, you will have an even better chance of being accepted into the program.
- If you’re open to starting a charity based on our research but still want to send us your idea, they are happy to look at your research and reasoning. However, to be accepted to the program you must be able to make a good case that it is similarly high-impact to their recommended charities list.
