Who are we?

We started 80,000 Hours because we weren’t sure what to do with our own careers, and existing advice couldn’t answer our biggest questions. Since then we’ve been on a mission to create the world’s best advice on how to choose a meaningful, high-impact career.

About us

How are we funded?

We’re a non-profit, fully funded by individual donors and users of our advice. We don’t accept money for advertising or corporates. So our only aim is to help you to have more impact.
