Disbursement timing tool
This is a tool, based on my donation timing model (
here, see especially section 3), for helping you determine the schedule on which you think philanthropists trying to maximize their impact should disburse their assets, as a function of your beliefs about some input parameters.
For inputs that roughly capture my own current beliefs, click

This tool currently omits several variables relevant to the disbursement timing problem. For a more thorough model and list of considerations, see the paper draft linked above. I hope to make this tool more sophisticated over time. For now, though, I think its recommendations are a decent first approximation.
