Americas Business Council 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 2022. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Knight Foundation150,000.001--Communities Grant period: 11/01/2012 - 10/31/2013; goal: To co-sponsor the Americas Business Council Foundation's event in Miami The three-day gathering brings leaders together to confront the most pressing social and environmental issues in the Americas. It’s becoming one of the important convenings of thought leaders in Miami – and another sign that Miami is increasingly a place where important conversations are taking place. This year’s conference lineup includes Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes (who is also a Knight Foundation trustee), KIVA co-founder Jessica Jackley, The Humane Society’s, CEO and President Wayne Pacelle, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Knight Foundation, which is focused on building more informed and engaged communities, is a sponsor of the conference. For several years, Knight has worked to build Miami’s art and cultural life and, as it continues that work, is now also focused on making Miami more of a place where ideas are built. To do that, Knight funds important gatherings that connect and inspire, and invests in the tools that allow people to better take action.
