Animal Welfare Action Lab 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, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Effective Altruism Funds75,000.0012018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farming/meat alternatives/surveys Bollard Grant to support replication on a larger, more reliable platform two recent M-Turk surveys by Eva Vivalt and Bobbie MacDonald: (impact of clean meat on ethical beliefs) and (how to overcome naturalistic resistance to clean meat). Bollard is excited because he thinks (a) we need more data on potential acceptance and impacts of clean meat, (b) the researchers have a track record of good research that follows best practices (e.g., pre-registration, open data), and (c) replication on different platforms is useful for assessing the robustness of findings. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 6.22%.
Open Philanthropy Project79,100.0022017-06Animal welfare/factory farming/survey research Bollard Discretionary grant via the Reducetarian Foundation to fund a study to replicate and improve upon an earlier multi-wave study by grantee (AWAL). Improvements include a larger, more representative sample via YouGov, and the potential to fund a third-wave component analyzing whether any effect endures after two months. Funds primarily cover spending on YouGov. The initial amount of $58,550 was topped up by $20,550 in July 2018, for a total of $79,100. Announced: 2017-08-21.
