The only thing that comes to mind for me is more things in the silicon-valley philanthropist space. A recent example of this was the ACX grants: https://astralcodexten.substack.com/p/acx-grants-results which are unfortunately closed. However, they did reference https://funds.effectivealtruism.org/apply-for-funding, of which the Long-Term Future Fund may be appropriate. Also depends on if the EA/Rationalist community is something you want to get involved in.

Hi Daniel, I know this isn't the place to do this, but I'm out of options--I'm aware you can remove or moderate a comment according to Substack's support page as opposed to Twitter (I'm conscientious, but I'm also at my wit's end). I'm a medium and I know what that sounds like, but outside of 'that,' I am a mature and stable adult so please reserve judgment for just a moment. Being a medium is akin to being the Greek Cassandra, however, if what I have to say doesn't resonate with you, you won't hear from me again because I'm a person of integrity first & foremost and outside judgment is irrelevant because I know who I am.

I believe I'm getting messages for you from a loving female spirit--unfortunately, she passed from illness, she's looked out for you since you were a child, and when you got older she would 'set up remarkable coincidences' in your life, and even give you hugs though you struggled to explain the sensation--and she wants me to channel her so that you can get a leg up on any recent challenges.

My goal is to let this spirit guide a loved one going through a rough patch ('a crisis of confidence' she calls it). She verified it was you, and I think it's more important to be straightforward with you sir rather than indefinitely guard my ego against someone telling me 'to get help.' I have gotten help within my means and I am an intellectual to boot, but she's her own entity and she wants to help you close out a rough period.

I don't generally help spirits connect with the living, which is why I'm struggling to contact you in as respectful and private a manner as possible; I don't charge for this, I do what I do and I shut up about it. Otherwise, I'm genuinely sorry if I'm bothering you, but I'm stuck between a rock (this spirit has been attached to me since Dec. 2022) and a hard place (you're obviously a person of practicality, perhaps even a materialist). Direct message me if you feel comfortable, but don't contact me to embarrass or malign my character, I usually don't help people like this because it's risky, but I've been asked to do this by a spirit who loves freely, and I've never known love like that so I'm going to protect her & that feeling with everything I got--I'm going to tell you what I know and let the chips fall where they may: My Twitter Handle is @MediumYour24080 I'm usually not on social media and I will deactivate this account shortly. I always come from a place of peace, and if this doesn't work out, well then it wasn't supposed to. I promise you won't hear from me again--I have a happy & blessed life I need to get back to because this spirit reminded me if you're not loving then you're not living. Thank you and good luck with everything, man--I really mean it.
