Past income and spending

2015

When Tom Ash started our focus projects in April 2014 (beginning with the first EA Survey that month, in preparation for the EA Hub and later projects like LEAN seeding which depended on the contacts it established), it was with a conscious plan to self-fund initially, following the model of Charity Science for which he also did a little work for some of this period. We started donor funded spending with a distinct charity bank account in April 2015. Spending ramped up very slowly over the year, hitting full levels by the end of it, alongside our first public fundraising effort in December 2015.
