Against Malaria Foundation donations received

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 as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2023. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Some of the main themes: staff members deciding whether to donate directly to specific GiveWell top charities or donate to GiveWell for regranting to top charities. While most people choose the latter, a few choose the former for reasons including tax advantages, opinion of other family members, and slightly different moral weights than those used by GiveWell. Donors also talk about setting aside small portions of their giving for other kinds of causes, including animal welfare, AI safety, climate change, mental health, social justice, and local philanthropy. Amounts donated are not included, per a decision by GiveWell
Recommendation to Open Philanthropy for Grants to Top Charities2019-11-26GiveWellOpen Philanthropy Malaria Consortium Helen Keller International Sightsavers Against Malaria Foundation The END Fund GiveDirectly Development Media International Dispenses for Safe Water Food Fortification Initiative Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition Georgetown University Initiative on Innovation, Development, and Evaluation Iodine Global Network Living Goods Project Healthy Children GiveWell Periodic donation list documentationGlobal health and developmentThe document details GiveWell's recommendation in 2019 for grants by Good Ventures (via the Open Philanthropy Project) to GiveWell top and standout charities. The overall amount of money recommended for allocation is $54.6 million, and the document explains that Open Phil's calculation that it may make sense to spend down more slowly was the reason for reducing the allocation from last year. It discusses the principles used for allocation: (1) Put significant weight on cost-effectiveness estimates, (2) Consider additional information not explicitly modeled about the organization, (3) Consider additional information not explicitly modeled about the funding gap, (4) Assess funding gaps at the margin, (5) Default to not imposing restrictions on charity spending, (6) Default to funding on a 3-year horizon, and (7) Ensure charities are incentivized to engage with the process. The three charities that get significant grants are Malaria Consortium for its SMC program ($33.9 million), Helen Keller International ($9.7 million), and Sightsavers ($2.7 million). Against Malaria Foundation, The END Fund, and GiveDirectly receive the minimum "incentive grant" amount of $2.5 million that all top charities should receive. The top charity Deworm the World Initiative is not given an incentive grant because it received a previous grant through GiveWell discretionary grant that more than covers the incentive grant amount. 8 standout charities get $100,000 each
Announcing our 2019 top charities2019-11-26Catherine Hollander GiveWellGiveWell Maximum Impact Fund Malaria Consortium Against Malaria Foundation Helen Keller International Deworm the World Initiative Sightsavers The END Fund GiveDirectly Schistosomiasis Control Initiative GiveWell Evaluator consolidated recommendation listGlobal health and developmentGiveWell annual top charrities list. As in previous years, GiveWell recomemnds that donors donate to GiveWell to regrant to top charities at its discretion, but also provides its current ranked list of top charities to help donors make an informed decision. Its ranked list (from best to worst) is: Malaria Consortium (seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) program), Against Malaria Foundation, Helen Keller International (vitamin A suppplementation), charities that treat parasitic worm infections (Evidence Action's Deworm the World Initiative, Sightsavers, The END Fund), and GiveDirectly. From the perspective of cause areas, the rank is: malaria > vitamin A supplementation > deworming > cash transfers. This is consistent with, and highly influenced by, the cost-effectiveness estimates that GiveWell uses. The post highlights Malaria Consortium as the charity to select for donors who want to give directly to a charity. The post links to a number of more in-depth write-ups explaining the charity ranking, as well as to https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2019/open-philanthropy-recommendation which describes the recommendation to Open Philanthropy Project (and indirectly, to Good Ventures) on how to allocate funding to the top charities in 2019

GiveWell’s Top Charities Are (Increasingly) Hard to Beat2019-07-09Alexander Berger Open PhilanthropyOpen Philanthropy GiveDirectly Against Malaria Foundation Schistosomiasis Control Initiative Target Malaria JustLeadershipUSA GiveWell Broad donor strategyGlobal health and development|Criminal justice reform|Scientific researchIn the blog post, Alexander Berger discusses how, originally, Open Philanthropy Project donations for near-term human well-being (primarily in the areas of criminal justice reform and scientific research) are compared against a cost-effectiveness benchmark of direct cash transfers, which is set as 100x (every $1 donated should yield $100 in benefits). However, since GiveWell has recently made its cost-effectiveness calculations for top charities more thorough, and now estimates that top charities are 5-15x as cost-effective as cash (or 500-1500x, with 1000x as a median), Berger is now comparing all the existing near-term human well-being grants against the 1000x benchmarks. He finds that, using the back-of-the-envelope calculations (BOTECs) done at the time of justifying the grants, many of the criminal justice reform grants do not clear the bar; in total only $32 million of the grants clears the bar, and about half of it is a single grant to Target Malaria. Berger links to https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GsE2_TNWn0x6MWL1PTdkZT2vQNFW8VFBslC5qjk4sgo/edit?ts=5cc10604 for some sample BOTECs.
GiveWell Top Charities Explained: Against Malaria Foundation2019-01-10Ozy Brennan Against Malaria Foundation GiveWell Evaluator review of doneeGlobal health/malariaThe blog post gives an overview of GiveWell top charity Against Malaria Foundation, and of insecticide-treated bednet distribution programs in general. It argues that misuse for fishing, and undermining of local markets, are not major concerns, but insecticide resistance could be. The post concludes with reasons for donating to AMF: "(a) You care a lot about the deaths of children under five. (b) You think the deaths of fetuses matter as much as the deaths of children under five. (c) You want a program that is robustly good on a bunch of different axes: it makes people less sick and less likely to die and increases their income. (d) You want a program that definitely works and has very few negative side effects, even if it might be less cost-effective than other programs. (e) You grew up in a place with mosquitoes and have sworn eternal vengeance on the tiny blood-sucking monstrosities."

Approaches to Moral Weights: How GiveWell Compares to Other Actors2017-11-07GiveWellGiveWell Maximum Impact Fund Open Philanthropy GiveWell top charities Deworm the World Initiative Schistosomiasis Control Initiative Against Malaria Foundation Malaria Consortium GiveDirectly GiveWell Evaluator quantification approachIn-depth look at how the way GiveWell uses moral weights in cost-effectiveness analyses (such as the value of saving lives) compares with the way governments and others in public policy use it. One difference is that the target population GiveWell deals with is often in low and middle income countries (LMIC) for which estimates of the value of a life saved are more murky. The document also talks of the different moral weights associated with saving people at different ages. See https://blog.givewell.org/2017/11/07/how-givewell-and-mainstream-policymakers-compare-the-good-achieved-by-different-programs/ for a blog post by Josh Rosenberg announcing and summarizing the report.

Allocation of discretionary funds and new recommendation for donors2017-04-03Natalie Crispin GiveWellGiveWell Maximum Impact Fund GiveWell top charities Against Malaria Foundation Schistosomiasis Control Initiative Deworm the World Initiative GiveWell Periodic donation list documentationGlobal healthGiveWell announces that it will allocate $4.9 million dollars of discretionary funds as follows: $4.4 million to the Against Malaria Foundation, and $0.5 million to the Deworm the World Initiative. Further, it updates its recommendation to donors, saying they should give all money at the margin to the Against Malaria Foundation. This updates the November 2016 recommendation to give to AMF and the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative in a 3:1 ratio

It has preference for a diverse portfolio. The six selected charities are: Against Malaria Foundation, Living Goods, Population Services International, GiveDirectly, and Possible. Charities that narrowly missed being in the Top Picks are Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, Deworm the World Initiative (Evidence Action), and Fistula Foundation

Does the Against Malaria Foundation Reduce Invertebrate Suffering?2016-02-01Brian Tomasik Against Malaria Foundation Evaluator review of doneeGlobal health/malariaBrian Tomasik reviews the Against Malaria Foundation, tentatively claiming that it is a good donation target, because by saving human lives, it causes a net reduction in invertebrate lives and therefore a erduction in invertebrate suffering. He thinks that deworming charities are unlikely to yield similar benefits because they simply reduce poverty rather than increase human population

For contrast, he considers direct work in nonprofits and in other high-impact careers. He talks about the value of direct feedback and the significant difference between what a skilled person and a less skilled person can accomplish with direct work. Sinick draws extensively on his experience working at GiveWell where he evaluated the cost-effectiveness of charities.

GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund8,700,000.0052021-11Global health/malaria/bednetshttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q3 2021 (July to September) and would therefore be expected to be in Q4 2021, which it is.

Other notes: Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund2,300,000.00152021-08Global health/malaria/bednetshttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q1-2021#How_did_we_arrive_at_our_allocation explains the seven principles followed in deciding the allocation: "Principle 1: Put significant weight on our cost-effectiveness estimates. Principle 2: Consider additional information that we have not explicitly modeled about an organization. Principle 3: Consider additional information that we have not explicitly modeled about a funding gap. Principle 4: Assess charities' funding gaps at the margin, i.e., how they would spend additional funding, where possible. Principle 5: Default to not imposing restrictions on charities' spending. Principle 6: Default to funding on a three-year horizon, modifying to preserve our options for the future where doing so is low-cost. Principle 7: Ensure charities are incentivized to engage with our process." There are more details in the document.

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q2-2021#How_we_expect_this_grant_will_be_used-0 says: "The funding opportunities AMF is considering supporting are: (1) Purchasing additional LLINs to be delivered in nationwide campaigns in Togo and Uganda. (2) Filling the remaining funding gap for LLIN distributions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). (3) Shortening the length of time that passes between LLIN distributions in three Nigerian states where distributions are currently supported by PMI."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q2-2021#amfcase says: "AMF's overall portfolio is cost-effective. We estimate that the opportunities listed above are above our cost-effectiveness threshold: DRC (13x cash), Nigeria (15x cash), Togo (9x cash), and Uganda (17x cash).36 For DRC and Nigeria, these estimates include our recent work to model the cost-effectiveness of reducing the amount of time that passes between LLIN distributions. [...] Instead, we're proposing this grant based on the third principle for maximizing cost-effectiveness over time: we are recommending this grant because we have a sufficiently high degree of certainty that a contribution to AMF's overall portfolio is above our cost-effectiveness threshold."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount is determined by the total amount available ($14 million) and the $9.4 million already granted to New Incentives for a more time-sensitive need. The remaining amount ($4.6 million) is split equally between AMF and Malaria Consortium, both of which have substantial room for more funding that is similarly cost-effective but not time-sensitive.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 16.43%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q2 2021 (April to June) and would therefore be expected to be in Q3 2021, which it is.

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q2-2021#amfcase says: "AMF has much more room for more funding above our cost-effectiveness threshold than will be filled by this grant. We consequently expect to direct much more funding to it in 2021. [...] We expect to do more work to refine our estimates of AMF's cost-effectiveness and room for more funding, which will inform the total amount of funding we ultimately direct to AMF this year."

Donor retrospective of the donation: The fund allocation for Q3 2021 allocates the entire $8.7 million for that quarter to AMF, suggesting a continued positive evaluation of AMF's work. As of December 2021, no write-up on the grant has been published.

Other notes: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q2-2021#amfcase describes some risks and reservations about the grant. Affected countries: Togo|Uganda|Democratic Republic of the Congo|Nigeria; announced: 2012-12-02.

Principle 2: Consider additional information that we have not explicitly modeled about an organization.

Principle 4: Assess charities' funding gaps at the margin, i.e., how they would spend additional funding, where possible. Principle 5: Default to not imposing restrictions on charities' spending. Principle 6: Default to funding on a three-year horizon, modifying to preserve our options for the future where doing so is low-cost. Principle 7: Ensure charities are incentivized to engage with our process." There are more details in the document.

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant "to fund long-lasting insecticide-treated net (LLIN) distributions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2023, [...] We estimate that AMF's room for more funding for DRC in 2023 is about $2.9 million [...] Therefore, we believe the actual effect of this grant will be to free up $1 million of AMF's future revenue to use for other LLIN campaigns."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q1-2021#Against_Malaria_Foundation estimates the grant as 15x cash, along with a range of estimates depending on how thte funds end up funging (15x for Nigeria, 9x for Togo, 17x for Uganda).

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount only partially funds the programs it funds ($1 million out of $2.9 million); it covers $1 million out of $13.5 million available for granting. The exact reasons for allocating this particular amount to this grantee are not described.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 7.41%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q1 2021 (January to March) and would therefore be expected to be in Q2 2021, which it is.

Other notes: Affected countries: Chad; announced: 2021-08-31.
GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund25,900,000.0012021-03Global health/malaria/bednetshttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: This grant was decided along with several other grant decisions and funding recommendations made in January and Febuary 2021 that https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/grants-jan-feb-2021 documents; the Malaria Consortium also received a large sum of money as part of the process but via Open Philanthropy.

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant "to support its work in Nigeria in 2021-22 ($21.4 million) and in DRC in 2022-23 ($5.9 million)."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/grants-jan-feb-2021#Case_for_these_grants gives estimates of AMF's work in Nigeria as 15x cash and Congo as 13x cash. It identifies the Nigeria opportunity as time-sensitive, and the Congo opportunity as potentially time-sensitive. It also reports having completed a review of monitoring results of AMF's Congo distribution, and being satisfied with the results.

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The entire amount of funds donated to the GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund for Q4 2020 was granted to AMF. The amount in Q4 is generally higher than in other quarters due to greater amounts of giving during Giving Season.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q4 2020 (October to December) and would therefore be expected to be in Q1 2021, which it is. The decision process for this quarter is combined with the grant recommendations to Open Philanthropy to recommend to Good Ventures.

Other notes: Some other grants to AMF are also recommended alongside this: a total of about $1.5 million from Effective Altruism Funds ($0.7 million), Effective Altruism Australia ($0.3 million), Effektiv Spenden ($0.4 million), and RC Forward ($0.1 million), each of which offer their own version of the Maximum Impact Fund. In addition, GiveWell suggested to a separate donor to donate $20 million to AMF. Affected countries: Nigeria|Democratic Republic of the Congo; announced: 2021-06-24.
Open Philanthropy6,651,000.0062020-12Global health/malaria/bednetshttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/global-health-and-development/miscellaneous/against-malaria-foundation-general-support-2020GiveWell Donation process: The grant is based on GiveWell's recommendation. GiveWell made the recommendations as part of its end-of-year recommendations to Open Philanthropy, along with allocations to other GiveWell top and standout charities. The total budget of $100 million is set by Open Philanthropy, but GiveWell decided to allocate only $70 million in end-of-year grantmaking and defers the remaining $30 million to early 2021. GiveWell explains the process in detail at https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2020/open-philanthropy-recommendation (published February 2021).

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2020/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Against_Malaria_Foundation says: "This is the amount that we estimate will allow AMF to fund all the campaigns it is considering implementing that require commitments before August 2021. [...] We expect that AMF will use this funding for campaigns in DRC (15x cash) and/or Guinea (14x cash) in 2022."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2020/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Our_recommended_allocation_to_Open_Philanthropy describes the overall thinking behind the grant. This grant is listed under "fully-vetted opportunities for 2021-2022 that are more than 10x cash" and in particular this grant is listed as 14x cash.

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2020/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Against_Malaria_Foundation says: "This is the amount that we estimate will allow AMF to fund all the campaigns it is considering implementing that require commitments before August 2021. It is possible that this is an underestimate, as we are assuming AMF will continue to receive a relatively high amount of revenue from individual donors, based on recent trends. This risk is mitigated by the fact that we will have the opportunity to check whether this assumption has held up when we revisit AMF's room for more funding in January 2021."
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 9.50%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Part of GiveWell's end-of-year recommendations for Open Philanthropy, so the timing is determined by the timing of end-of-year recommendations (which is usually the week after Thanksgiving in the United States). The grant is made by Open Philanthropy shortly after the recommendations.
Intended funding timeframe in months: 24

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2020/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Against_Malaria_Foundation says: "Funding gaps that AMF told us about that we are not recommending filling at this time include those for distributions that will occur in 2023 (totaling $37.8 million). We are not recommending funding these gaps at this time because (a) we want to review recently-available monitoring results from AMF's recent distributions in DRC before committing additional funding to distributions there, and (b) these gaps are less time-sensitive (we expect that AMF will need to commit funding to these distributions in the latter half of 2021 to avoid delaying them). We expect to revisit AMF's room for more funding as part of our January 2021 recommendation to Open Philanthropy."

Donor retrospective of the donation: Against Malaria Foundation would continue to be a GiveWell top charity in 2021 as well as receive grants from the GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund at GiveWell's recommendation in 2021, suggesting contined satisfaction with the grantee.

GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund11,700,000.0042020-09Global health/malaria/bednetshttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ says: "We typically allocate flexible donations to our top charities every quarter. However, we delayed allocating the donations we received to “Grants to recommended charities at GiveWell’s discretion” in the first quarter of 2020. We wanted to better understand the impact of the growing COVID-19 pandemic on charities’ budgets and plans before making a decision about where funding would have the greatest impact. [...] We considered making grants to Malaria Consortium’s seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) program and Helen Keller International (HKI)’s vitamin A supplementation program, as we estimated that they were similarly cost-effective to AMF when we began our decisionmaking process."

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ says: "AMF supports the distribution of insecticide-treated nets in areas with high rates of malaria. The nets stop mosquitoes from biting and spreading the disease. We estimate our donors’ support for AMF will collectively save over 3,000 lives, mostly of young children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Guinea. Without this grant, we think net distributions in DRC and Guinea would have been delayed."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ says: "AMF was a top contender for receiving this grant because of its high estimated impact per dollar. It is continuing its work during the pandemic, with some delays and modifications. [...] As of June 2020, AMF had committed nearly all of this [past $70 million] funding and held only around $4 million in uncommitted funds. [...] There is a strong case the distributions would be delayed without this grant, as funding needs to be secured well before nets are provided. [...] We investigated AMF’s current monitoring practices in detail this year and believe AMF meets our high standards. [...] our investigation into [Malaria Consortium SMC and Helen Keller International Vitamin A supplementation] current plans and budgets did not turn up urgent funding needs."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The entirety of funds available in the Maximum Impact Fund from Q1 and Q2 2020 was granted to Against Malaria Foundation, as it was the highest-priority funding need identified.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This grant round included allocation of funds for two quarters (Q1 and Q2 2020) in Q3 2020. https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ explains the allocation delay: "We typically allocate flexible donations to our top charities every quarter. However, we delayed allocating the donations we received to “Grants to recommended charities at GiveWell’s discretion” in the first quarter of 2020. We wanted to better understand the impact of the growing COVID-19 pandemic on charities’ budgets and plans before making a decision about where funding would have the greatest impact."

Other notes: An additional $3.6 million in unrestricted funding available to GiveWell is also allocated to Against Malaria Foundation, bringing its total funding in this round to $15.3 million. In addition, GiveWell announces that it had granted $8 million in flexible funding to the Malaria Consortium's SMC program in June. Affected countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo|Guinea; announced: 2020-10-13.

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): While the reasons for the amount are not discussed, it's likely that this was the amount GiveWell could allocate of its unrestricted funding after making sure it had enouogh for its operating costs.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): The grant is timed to be along with the grant from the Maximum Impact Fund. https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ explains the allocation delay: "We typically allocate flexible donations to our top charities every quarter.

GiveWell made the recommendations as part of its end-of-year recommendations to Open Philanthropy, along with allocations to other GiveWell top and standout charities. The total budget is based on guidelines set by Open Philanthropy. GiveWell explains the process in detail at https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2019/open-philanthropy-recommendation (published November 2019).

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Donor reason for selecting the donee: Against Malaria Foundation is a GiveWell top charity, and therefore receives the $2.5 million incentive grant that all top charities receive, per https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2019/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Principles_we_followed Principle 7: "To this end, since 2016, we have recommended that Open Philanthropy provide a minimum “incentive grant” to top charities ($2.5 million) and standout charities ($100,000)."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount ($2.5 million) is chosen since it is the size of the incentive grant (per https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2019/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Principles_we_followed Principle 7). https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2019/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Against_Malaria_Foundation says: "We decided not to recommend filling AMF's room for more funding beyond the $2.5 million incentive grant."

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Part of GiveWell's end-of-year recommendations for Open Philanthropy, so the timing is determined by the timing of end-of-year recommendations (which is usually the week after Thanksgiving in the United States). The grant is made by Open Philanthropy shortly after the recommendations.

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2019/open-philanthropy-recommendation#Against_Malaria_Foundation says: "Over the next few months, we plan to revisit the possibility of making a large grant to AMF. Our decision will rely on what 2020 distribution agreements AMF signs in the near future (if any); how well we are able to answer outstanding questions we have about AMF's monitoring; and, if available, results from AMF's 2019 distributions in DRC, where it is likely to commit marginal funding. We estimate that AMF's average cost-effectiveness is 17x cash."

Donor retrospective of the donation: Against Malaria Foundation would continue to remain a GiveWell top charity in 2020 and 2021, and receive several additional grants from the GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund and Open Philanthropy on GiveWell's recommendation.

Two charities that competed closely for the discretionary regrant were Malaria Consortium and Against Malaria Foundation. The blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/ goes over the comparison with Malaria Consortium, and has a section "Process for deciding where to allocate fund" describing the process and linking to a previous post https://blog.givewell.org/2018/11/26/our-recommendation-to-good-ventures/#Principles for more information

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: AMF will use additional funding to support a distribution of nets scheduled for 2020 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2020 or 2021. https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/#AdditionalFunding has more details.

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The section https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/#OtherPossibilities says: "Weighing these factors, we ultimately chose AMF over Malaria Consortium based on its somewhat higher modeled cost-effectiveness and more time-sensitive funding need." This is the same decision made for allocating the previous quarter's discretionary funds, as described at https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount is the amount donated by donors to GiveWell for discretionary regranting to top charities in Q2 2019; GiveWell allocates the money separately for each quarter
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q2 2019 (April to June) and would therefore be expected to be in Q3 2019, which it is.

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: The section https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/#OtherPossibilities says: "We now model additional funding to AMF as roughly 33 percent more cost-effective than additional funding to Malaria Consortium’s SMC program, as a result of adjusting the chance of additional funding supporting nets in DRC from 87 percent to 75 percent. We have not received any new information to update us on the time sensitivity of Malaria Consortium’s funding needs, and we continue to view Malaria Consortium as stronger than AMF on unmodeled qualitative factors."

GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund4,700,000.0082019-06Global health/malaria/bednetshttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: GiveWell looked at the funding gap and value of marginal funds for each of its top charities. Two charities that competed closely for the discretionary regrant were Malaria Consortium and Against Malaria Foundation. The blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/ has a section "Our process" describing how GiveWell decided to support AMF instead of Malaria Consortium.

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: AMF expects to allocate all funding that it receives in the near future toward distributing insecticide-treated nets in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in 2020. More is explained in https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/ in the "What AMF will do with additional funding" section.

Donor reason for selecting the donee: In the section "Updates since March 2019" of the blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/ GiveWell explains why it selected AMF instead of Malaria Consortium for this discretionary regrant, even though the previous quarter, it had selected MC. The two main reasons listed are: (1) An error correction in the cost-effectiveness estimate for AMF, described at https://www.givewell.org/how-we-work/our-criteria/cost-effectiveness/cost-effectiveness-models/changelog-2019#Version_3_Published_March_21_2019 has increased GiveWell's cost-effectiveness estimate for AMF, (2) After the previous quarter's discretionary regrant to MC in March 2019 described at https://blog.givewell.org/2019/03/29/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q4-2018/ GiveWell thinks MC has less room for more funding.

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount is the amount donated by donors to GiveWell for discretionary regranting to top charities in Q1 2019; GiveWell allocates the money separately for each quarter
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q1 2019 (January to March) and would therefore be expected to be in Q2 2019, which it is.

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: Grant for general operating support, which has GiveWell top charity status; see https://www.givewell.org/charities/amf AMF funds distributions of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) for protection against malaria in developing countries

Donor reason for selecting the donee: GiveWell recommends Against Malaria Foundation for the following reasons: (1) Excellent evidence of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness. (2) Good monitoring process for checking long-term effects. (3) Room for more funding. (4) Transparency. The full GiveWell review is at https://www.givewell.org/charities/amf and the top charity selection is at https://blog.givewell.org/2018/11/26/our-updated-top-charities-for-giving-season-2018/

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): GiveWell explains the principles affecting its decision of how much money to allocate to each charity in https://blog.givewell.org/2018/11/26/our-recommendation-to-good-ventures/ (1) Put significant weight on our cost-effectiveness estimates. (2) Consider additional information about an organization that we have not explicitly modeled. (3) Assess charities’ funding gaps at the margin, i.e., where they would spend additional funding, where possible. (4) Default towards not imposing restrictions on charity spending. (5) Fund on a three-year horizon, unless we are particularly uncertain whether we will want to continue recommending a program in the future. (6) Ensure charities are incentivized to engage with our process. Ultimately, GiveWell decides to only allocate to the Against Malaria Foundation the minimum amount for top charities, i.e., $2.5 million

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Part of GiveWell's end-of-year recommendations for Open Philanthropy, so the timing is determined by the timing of end-of-year recommendations (which is usually the week after Thanksgiving in the United States). The grant is made by Open Philanthropy shortly after the recommendations

Donor retrospective of the donation: The discretionary regranting decisions https://blog.givewell.org/2019/03/29/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q4-2018/ (to Malaria Consortium) and https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/ (to Against Malaria Foundation) can be viewed as a retrospective on this decision, insofar as they consider further funding gaps for Against Malaria Foundation after the grant.

Other notes: Even accounting for this grant, GiveWell identifies a remaining funding gap of $72.5 million for Against Malaria Foundation. See https://www.givewell.org/charities/amf/November-2018-version for GiveWell's review of AMF at the time of the grant recommendation.

Out of a total donation amount of $142,000 for 2017, the budget for GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund is 50%; of this, 79% goes to the Against Malaria Foundation (this is a little higher than the 70% recommended by GiveWell); this works out to $56,000. Out of this, $6000 was already donated in January. The couple chose to donate directly to the top charities rather than to GiveWell for regranting, in order for Jeff to be able to participate in donation matching at work. The selection of PayPal Giving Fund was because it allowed the couple to use a 2% cash-back credit card and also give the charity an extra 1% match from PayPal (so $500). Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 35.20%.

GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund2,500,000.00112017-08Global health/malaria/bednetshttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Grant uses money donated between January and February 2017. Blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2017/04/03/allocation-of-discretionary-funds/ announces $4.4 million grant to AMF from the funds GiveWell has for discretionary regranting (see https://blog.givewell.org/2016/12/19/discretionary-grant-making-and-implications-for-donor-agency/ for more background on how this differs from GiveWell top charities). This is because AMF has the largest remaining Execution Level 1 gap based on the funding gaps identified in November 2016, and reports of funds raised as of February 2017. An additional $0.5 million is being granted to Deworm the World Initiative, and GiveWell recommends that donors giving now should donate all their money to the Against Malaria Foundation. Although a total grant of $4.4 million is announced, only $2.1 million is allocated at the time. The remaining $2.5 million (a bit more than the original estimate would suggest) for donations between January and February 2017 is paid out in August 2017. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 51.00%.

Grant to AMF because Hassenfeld believes it is the highest expected value opportunity in the domain. Also, all funding opportunities in GiveWell Incubation Grants have been fully met to his satisfaction, so no need to use this fund for that money.

This is because AMF has the largest remaining Execution Level 1 gap based on the funding gaps identified in November 2016, and reports of funds raised as of February 2017. An additional $0.5 million is being granted to Deworm the World Initiative, and GiveWell recommends that donors giving now should donate all their money to the Against Malaria Foundation. Although a total grant of $4.4 million is announced, only $2.1 million out of that is allocated at this time; the rest would be granted in April. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 42.90%.

Good Ventures/GiveWell top and standout charities15,080,000.0032017-01Global health/malariahttp://www.goodventures.org/our-portfolio/grants/against-malaria-foundation-general-support2GiveWell Grant for general support to a 2016 GiveWell top charity. Grant announced on 2016-11-28 at https://blog.givewell.org/2016/11/28/updated-top-charities-giving-season-2016/#Sec3a along with GiveWell top and standout charities list. The grant appears to show up in AMF records (see https://www.againstmalaria.com/Milestones.aspx?tab=money section "Money raised") on January 18, causing a bump for AMF lifetime money raised from ~$101 million to ~$116 million.
Haseeb Qureshi11,340.00522017Global health/malariahttps://medium.freecodecamp.org/yearly-donations-and-why-you-should-give-now-not-later-cba890cabfbeGiveWell Donation process: The announcement post says that the donor is donating 33% of his pre-tax income, as usual. This money is being allocated between different charities, based on the donor's assessment

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: The announcement post says: "The Against Malaria Foundation is a non-profit that funds and distributes anti-malarial bednets in malaria-ravaged countries, primarily in Africa and Asia."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The annoucement post calls the donee "the same organization I donate to every year, and the #1 top ranked charity on Givewell for multiple years." It also says: "A single bednet can be funded and distributed for ~$4, making them perhaps the most cost-effective life-saving intervention in the world."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The total amount the donor is giving awaay is $45,370, which is 33% of pre-tax income. The allocation of 25% to AMF is the same as the previous two years
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 25.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): End-of-year round of donations of 33% of income in the year; this is part of the donor's earning-to-give strategy

Other notes: Announced: 2017-12-31.

Haseeb Qureshi12,650.00502016Global health/malariahttps://haseebq.com/2016-donations-and-some-thoughts/GiveWell Donation process: The announcement post says: "In 2016, my donations totaled $50,600. My finances this year were little more complicated, but that was my best estimate of 33% of my pre-tax income. (That income does not include RSUs; whenever I can liquidate them, I will also donate 33% of their value.) Below are the organizations I donated to and why."

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: The announcement post says: "The Against Malaria Foundation distributes low-cost anti-mosquito bednets in parts of Africa that are ravaged by malaria."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The announcement post says: "AMF has been repeatedly ranked by Givewell as the dollar-for-dollar most impactful charity in the world. It’s important to make speculative and high-risk altruistic investments. But there is some straightforward value in just rewarding and spreading the word about organizations that rock at saving lives (and in the worst case, to have no doubt that one’s donations are having real positive impact). I also donated to them in 2015, and good chance I’ll donate again in 2017."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The total amount the donor is giving away is $50,600, which is 33% of pre-tax income. The allocation of 25% to Against Malaria Foundation is likely determined by the needs of other recipients; it is also the same percentage as allocated in 2015
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 25.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): End-of-year round of donations of 33% of income in the year; this is part of the donor's earning-to-give strategy

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: The announcement post says: "good chance I’ll donate again in 2017"

Donor retrospective of the donation: The donor would make a similar donation to Against Malaria Foundation in 2017 https://medium.freecodecamp.org/yearly-donations-and-why-you-should-give-now-not-later-cba890cabfbe

Haseeb Qureshi5,300.00772015Global health/malariahttps://haseebq.com/my-first-year-earning-to-give-a-retrospective/GiveWell Donation process: The announcement post says: "In all I gave 33% of my pre-tax income, which since I started my job in June, amounts to $21,200 USD I donated to high-impact charities." The allocation of this $21,200 is based on analysis of the individual target charities

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: The donee "distributes low-cost anti-mosquito bednets in parts of Africa that are ravaged by malaria"

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The announcement post says of the donee: "AMF is ranked by Givewell as the most marginally impactful charity in the world."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The announcement post says: "In all I gave 33% of my pre-tax income, which since I started my job in June, amounts to $21,200 USD I donated to high-impact charities." AMF gets 25% of this money; the amount it gets is likely constrained by the needs of other recipients
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 25.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): End-of-year round of donations of 33% of income in the year; this is part of the donor's earning-to-give strategy

Donor retrospective of the donation: The donor would continue to donate to Against Malaria Foundation for the next two years; see https://haseebq.com/2016-donations-and-some-thoughts/ and https://medium.freecodecamp.org/yearly-donations-and-why-you-should-give-now-not-later-cba890cabfbe but would stop donating to it in 2018

Lower allocation to AMF (45%) relative to GiveWell allocation (67%), citing less weight to explicit cost-effectiveness and more weight to organizational strength. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 45.00%.
Alexander Berger----2014-12-17Global health/malariahttps://blog.givewell.org/2014/12/17/staff-members-personal-donations-giving-season-2014/GiveWell Giving a bit more to AMF than the recommended allocation that would work, because it seems more promising.
