June 2024 Fundraising Campaign

Thanks to the generosity of the EAA donor community in just the last two years, our partner programs will be able to help more than 1 million people with improved health, development, and income, and about 1,000 lives will be saved. But many millions more people could use our support.

We’re calling upon donors in Australia to help these programs transform thousands more lives by raising record funds this end-of-financial-year.

We’ve set an ambitious goal to raise $1.8 million for our partners in June 2024 – ~$300k more than our typical June average – and we’re offering a special match opportunity to those who’ve never donated via EAA or haven’t done so recently. See below for full conditions.

Matching Terms and Conditions

Overview

This matching offer is valid until the allocated $175,000 in matching funds are fully utilised. The match applies to donations of up to $5,000 from both new donors and those who have not donated to Effective Altruism Australia Pty. Ltd. (EAA) since 31 May 2023. The offer is effective until midnight AEST on 30 June 2024.

What your donation can achieve

We don’t know of any program that can save a life for just a few dollars, as some claim (here’s why saving a life is more expensive than that). But it’s true that some of the most effective interventions out there are relatively cheap. Here are some examples of what your donation could purchase.
