Support the Future of Life Institute
Interested in helping mitigate existential risk?
The continued existence of life on Earth is a goal we can all get behind, but there are real threats that put our future at risk. The Future of Life Institute is one of the only organizations in the world working directly to diminish those threats. As a small nonprofit, FLI relies 100% on donations to fund our work. While we’re fortunate to have received some large donations to tackle big problems, those donations are often designated for specific projects and/or re-granted as research grants, leaving very little general purpose funding. (If you’re interested in how our funding is allocated, please see our annual reports: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018). As we seek to educate more people about the threat of existential risks and to develop and implement new and unique solutions, we need your help.
You can donate below using PayPal, debit/credit, cryptocurrency, or Amazon Smile. If you’d like to be a regular supporter, please consider a monthly subscription donation to make sure we can continue our efforts into the future.
