The EA* Hotel is a Blackpool (UK)-based charity that assists full-time aspiring effective altruists by providing them with low-cost serviced living, and a friendly, productive work environment, at no cost to themselves. It is also a thriving EA community hub, hosting visitors from from far and wide. We are currently providing room and board, housekeeping, social activities, mentorship and a stipend to ~20 EAs at a total cost of ~£6000 per person per year. We think this is a very good deal for buying time spent working full time on work relating to EA and facilitating increased coordination and collaboration with a thriving EA community hub.
Our funding extends to May, and we are fully booked (dorm beds only until end of March). We are seeking funds to 1) extend our runway to the industry standard of 18 months and 2) expand: buy the building next door and host up to another 15 EAs. These correspond to funding targets of £130,000 and £300,000, respectively.
