Support our efforts to ensure a positive future for life on Earth.

There's always more to be done

You can help us make it happen.

We have run a number of ambitious projects aimed at ensuring transformative technologies are steered away from extreme, large-scale risks and towards benefiting life. That said, we’ve hardly made a dent in our list of project ideas.

Donations enable us to grow as an organisation and execute more of our plans. Visit Our work to read more about the work we have done so far and the types of projects your donations would help support.
