I gave more than I thought I would. In early 2020, I predicted I would give between 11% and 12% of my income to charity in 2020:
Unfortunately, due to the higher cost of living in the Bay Area and my student loan obligations, I do not foresee greatly exceeding 10% this year. I predict that I will ultimately end up donating between 11% and 12% of my income this year.
However, I actually gave closer to 16%, primarily due to lower expenses, good investment returns, higher earnings, refinancing my loans, and stimulus checks.

That is amazing Cullen!
Was this towards any particular organisations/charities?

As listed here:
- Legal Priorities Project: $ 10,005.50
- Long-Term Future EA Fund: $ 8,036.00
- Joe Biden for President: $ 2,800
- GiveWell (regrant): $ 1,551
- Center for Election Science: $ 1,000
- Charter Cities Institute: $ 1,000
- EA Cameroon: $ 250
- Against Malaria Foundation: $ 120
- GiveDirectly: $ 83.51
- Malaria Consortium: $ 30

I don't think COVID changed my allocation very much, with the exception of the EA Cameroon donation.
