Funding held by GiveWell as June 30, 2018--$3,235,309From GiveWell's internal donation records. This also includes two planned grants from the Global Health and Development EA Fund (https://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/global-development). This fund is not formally affiliated with GiveWell, but is managed by Elie Hassenfeld, Co-Founder and Executive Director of GiveWell. As of June 2018, SCI was expecting a grant for 1.2 million GBP from the fund. In addition, in late August 2018, Elie recommended that 30% of available funding in the Global Health and Development Fund be donated to SCI. The most recent fund balance available stated that the fund contained roughly $933,900 as of July 31, 2018. This amount may therefore have somewhat increased by the time the grant is made.
26
Annual projected revenue from donors who give based on GiveWell's top charity list, but do not follow our recommendation for marginal funding--$945,000GiveWell maintains both a list of all top charities that meet our criteria and a recommendation for which charity or charities to give to to maximize the impact of additional donations, given cost-effectiveness of remaining funding gaps.

In 2018, we recommended SCI as one of the places to give to maximize the impact of additional donations, so we use an estimate of this from 2017. See https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kkhbqU10Iiay5D4HV3d7VtHhufuwU-BGXngb9GRq804/edit#gid=0.
