Open Philanthropy is a major philanthropic foundation focused mainly on on causes associated with the Effective Altruism movement. Most of their money currently comes from Good Ventures, a foundation managing the philanthopic efforts of Facebook and Asana cofounder Dustin Moskovitz and his partner Cari Tuna, who have an estimated net worth of $22.8bn as of June 16th 2021. They donated $67 million to the focus area "Scientific Research" in 2020 and $54 million in 2019. This question asks about how much they will grant in 2030.

How much money will Open Philanthropy grant towards Scientific Research in 2030?

This question will resolve to the sum of the dollar values of Open Philanthropy grants dated 2030 and listed in their grants database with the focus area "Scientific Research". If their grants database is no longer public it will resolve to their announced total donations in this focus area in 2030. If Open Phil do not disclose their grants in this area for 2030 this question should resolve ambiguous.

If Open Phil change their cataloguing system for focus areas, any areas which are focused primarily on Scientific Research, excluding research into Artificial Intelligence Risks, should count towards resolution of this question.

See here for a similar question about 2025.

29 July edit: If Open Philanthropy no longer exists as an organization at the start of the year in question, this resolves as 0.
