Donations recorded by Vipul Naik (filtered to cause areas matching New Initiatives)

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice (see his commits) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; please do not share this data without consulting with Vipul Naik. We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of December 2018.
