Who are we?

We started 80,000 Hours because we weren’t sure what to do with our own careers, and no-one could answer our questions. Since then we’ve been on a mission to create the world’s best advice on how to choose a career with social impact.

About us

How come this is all free?

We’re a nonprofit funded by individual donors, who give to us so that we can help people like you have a greater impact. We haven’t accepted any corporate sponsorship or advertising fees.
