Antigravity Investments is an EA-aligned social enterprise that provides financial recommendations to effective charities that help them earn up to millions of dollars in additional revenue per year. We currently advise over $10 million in charitable capital and are backed by the Center for Effective Altruism’s Effective Altruism Grants program.
We are looking for a volunteer to increase the number of EA organizations and high-impact charities that are following best practices in the areas of treasury cash management and investing. For an example of our recommendations, please have a look at our EA Forum article on treasury cash management: https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/YjN6cGoXxPZeqCh4Z/eas-and-ea-orgs-should-move-cash-from-low-interest-to-high
Ideal applicants will have an interest in learning about finance and investing as well as marketing and sales experience. We are open to volunteers that have limited or no prior experience. Training will be provided in relevant areas, and tasks will be assigned according to a volunteer’s current skill level in a certain area. This work can be done remotely, and we also have shared office space available in Berkeley, CA.
Roughly in order from easiest to hardest, volunteer work may involve tasks like:
Finding the email addresses of key contacts within an organization
Drafting and sending emails to spread awareness of Antigravity Investments’ recommendations
Participating in email and phone conversations regarding an organization’s cash management and investing practices
Assessing an organization’s annual IRS Form 990 filing and other financial documents to assess the size of its investments and cash reserves and whether or not the organization is earning interest on its cash reserves
