Bold philanthropy for a flourishing future
Rising to the challenges of our time with ambition, compassion, and humility

We offer donor education, research reports, grant recommendations, a seamless grant transfer process, and ongoing progress reporting. Everything we provide is expertly vetted, tailored to the needs of each donor, and entirely free of charge.


We believe in the power of philanthropy. Philanthropy seeded the Green Revolution, helped cure polio, precipitated the first nuclear arms treaty, and drove the campaign against slavery. History shows that strategic generosity can not merely better the world so much as alter the course of history. Our goal is for every grant we recommend to help as many individuals as possible, as much as possible, while counting everyone equally — including future generations. We are truth-seeking, far-sighted, risk-neutral, and informed by the best available evidence.


We offer bespoke donor education, grant recommendations, and grant outcome reporting to donors giving over $1 million per year. Donors can either make grants directly to recommended organisations or contribute to our Longview Philanthropy Fund. Our grantmaking focuses on the challenges that could transform our world in the decades ahead, with lasting impact for centuries to come. Our work aims to reduce the risk of a major global catastrophe, such as a nuclear war between great powers, an engineered pandemic, or the misuse of advanced artificial intelligence. 


Great work is not done in isolation. Along with research, grantmaking, and donor education, we are passionate about fostering an ecosystem of thoughtful people working for positive change. At our retreats and events we bring together major philanthropists, academics, industry leaders, public intellectuals, policymakers, and others who care deeply about improving the world. 

These people began warning us of the risk posed by pandemics well before anyone had ever heard of COVID. That risk is higher now than it ever has been. To prevent the next pandemic - which could be far more devastating than any we have yet experienced - philanthropists should pay close attention to what the team at Longview has to say.

Fascinating exposure to bright minds, intensive learning on massive challenges and opportunity for rigorous thinking about how to make the world a better place.
Stacey Kline
CEO of Otto Intelligence
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.
