Future of Research — Exit Grant

Organization:
Future of Research
Award Date:
07/2017
Amount:
$150,000
Purpose:
For general support.

The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $150,000 to Future of Research (FoR) for general support. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on scientific research.

Open Philanthropy previously provided FoR with a two-year, $300,000 grant in 2016 to support the nonprofit's mission to “improve the scientific research enterprise.”[1] Since that time, Open Philanthropy has devoted less attention to directly funding science policy and infrastructure work than anticipated, and does not feel that it is in a position to properly evaluate FoR’s work. This award therefore represents an “exit grant” to FoR while they look for other sources of funding.
