Charity Entrepreneurship Incubation Program 2021

Deadline: 15 April 2021
Open to: interested applicants from around the world
Benefits: seed grant of up to $100,000


The second round of applications to the 2021 Charity Entrepreneurship Incubation Program is now open. The two-month, cost-covered online course will take you from a basic familiarity with starting charities to being fully prepared to create and operate an effective organization. Management, fundraising, impact analysis: everything you need to know, taught by mentors with experience establishing multiple EA charities – including a GiveWell top charity.

The program provides new entrepreneurs with all the tools to found an effective charity in just two months. Successful applicants get a free intensive training in skills like management, fundraising, impact analysis – everything needed to start a charity. They’ll finish the program with a co-founder and a high-impact nonprofit startup, and can apply for a seed grant of up yo $100,000.

The next two-month Incubation Program will run from 28 June to 27 August 2021. The program will run online, so you can participate fully remotely. Depending on the Covid situation, they may also organize part of the course offline for those who are able to travel to London.

The Incubation Program generally requires full-time commitment from 28 June to 27 August 2021 (stipends are provided to those in need). This year they’re also incorporating a preparation stage into the program so you can hit the ground running over the summer.


Open to interested applicants from around the world.


All costs are covered. When the program can be run in person this includes tuition, accommodation, any flights needed, and a modest living stipend. When the program must be run online (i.e. due to COVID-19), they provide stipends for those who need financial assistance due to the full-time commitment it requires.

If you have higher expenses due to special circumstances or dependents, you may qualify for additional financial assistance. Please apply as usual, and if you are accepted into the next round, they will discuss any special arrangements that might be needed.
