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 December 2019. 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.

GiveWell Top Charities Explained: Against Malaria Foundation2019-01-10Ozy Brennan Against Malaria Foundation 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 Actors2017-11-07GiveWell GiveWell top charities Deworm the World Initiative Schistosomiasis Control Initiative Against Malaria Foundation Malaria Consortium GiveDirectly 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. The earlier blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2017/06/01/how-givewell-uses-cost-effectiveness-analyses/ is also referenced. Also see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/newly-published-givewell-materials/xeSpZ512VFw (2017-11-07) for the mailing list announcement

GiveWell discretionary regranting4,700,000.0042019-06Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/about/FAQ/discretionary-grantmakingGiveWell 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 every quarter, for the completed quarter. This particular grant is for Q1 2019 (January to March) and would therefore be expected to be in Q2 2019, which it is

Other notes: The donation is announced and explained in the blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/. Affected countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo.

GiveWell discretionary regranting2,870,000.0052018-08Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/about/FAQ/discretionary-grantmakingGiveWell See https://blog.givewell.org/2018/08/28/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2018/ for more detail. Grant uses money donated between April and June 2018 (i.e., Q2 2018) of $1.2 million, as well as $2.9 million of unrestricted funds ($1.8 million held in reserve, and $1.1 million from a single donor donating $2.1 million). 70% of this total of $4.1 million is allocated to AMF in line with the general recommendation to donors to give 70% to AMF and 30% to SCI. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
GiveWell discretionary regranting2,072,000.0092018-05Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/about/FAQ/discretionary-grantmakingGiveWell Grant uses money donated between January and March 2018 (i.e., Q1 2018). See https://blog.givewell.org/2018/06/04/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2018/ for more details. Note that the grantmaking page rounds the total to $3.0 million, but the blog post specifies the amount as $2.96 million; we are using 70% of the latter. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
Jeff Kaufman and Julia Wise50,000.00262017-12-21Global health/malariahttps://www.jefftk.com/donationsGiveWell See https://www.jefftk.com/p/2017-donations for more background on the donation decision. Out of a total donation amount of $142,000 for 2017, the budget for GiveWell top charities 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: 100.00%.
Michael Levine----2017-12-18Global health/malariahttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/blog/staff-members-personal-donations-giving-season-2017#MikeGiveWell Donation of 70% to Against Malaria Foundation, consistent with the GiveWell recommendation for people who want to directly donate to GiveWell top charities (70% to Against Malaria Foundation, 30% to Schistosomiasis Control Initiative). Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
Catherine Hollander----2017-12-11Global health/malariahttps://blog.givewell.org/2017/12/11/staff-members-personal-donations-for-giving-season-2017/#Catherine-- Donation (90% to AMF) is based on trust in the GiveWell process and its recommendation of the AMF gap as the most important one to fill. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
Good Ventures/GiveWell top and standout charities2,500,000.0062017-12Global health/malariahttp://www.goodventures.org/our-portfolio/grants/against-malaria-foundation-general-support3GiveWell Grant is the $2.5 million minimum for being a top charity. Grant announced on 2017-11-27 at https://blog.givewell.org/2017/11/27/our-top-charities-for-giving-season-2017/ along with GiveWell top and standout charities list.
Ben Medlock331,500.00192017-08-22Global health/malariahttps://founderspledge.com/news/how-i-donated-or-ben-medlock-swiftkey-- Blog post describes why the donor, Medlock, chose malaria, and why he chose the Against Malaria Foundation for his donation. The donation amount is not explicitly specified; rather, it is inferred from the statement that his donation helped buy 66,300 nets at $5/net. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
GiveWell discretionary regranting2,500,000.0062017-08Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/about/FAQ/discretionary-grantmakingGiveWell 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: 100.00%.
Effective Altruism Funds331,126.00202017-06-27Global health/malariahttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/global-development/payouts/5usCuBFHQk2UcQ0WYOIUEkElie Hassenfeld Grant discussed at http://effective-altruism.com/ea/19d/update_on_effective_altruism_funds/ along with reasoning, though the amount at the time was not the full amount (just $311,562). 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. Hassenfeld is allocating the money immediately as he does not expect the situation to change over the next six months. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.

On LessWrong he mentions the November 2015 $3000 donation to AMF, but does not make clear whether that is his only donation to AMF in 2015. The same comment mentions donating to GiveDirectly, but that might just be the November 2015 donations that is entered separately.
