The total size of Biden’s donations ended up at $937 million versus Trump’s $595 million, which may have given Joe an edge. At the time of writing, he leads with 264 electoral votes over Trump’s 214. Vote counting is still underway.

Sam Bankman-Fried, the CEO of FTX, is a prominent philanthropist involved in the Effective Altruism community. Moreover, he is a member of the Political Action Committee (PAC) Future Forward.
