Causes vary dramatically in terms of their importance, neglectedness, and tractability. Where you put your money as a philanthropist matters, and Longview Philanthropy is excellent at helping donors accomplish as much good as possible with their giving.

Holden Karnofsky, CEO of Open Philanthropy & co-founder of GiveWell

If all goes well, humanity has a vast future ahead of it — but very little of our philanthropy takes the scale of this future seriously. That’s why I am so excited about Longview Philanthropy. They really get it, and are finding opportunities for lasting impact.

Longview Philanthropy are the leading philanthropic advisors on work to protect the long-term future, and have enabled multiple donors at scale to have a truly outsized impact.

We need to act today to protect future generations, and our current make-do thinking isn’t good enough. Longview Philanthropy understands this,  and their careful and thoughtful approach is exactly what we need.
