Aspen Institute 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 analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Melody C. Barnes, former director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, will chair the Aspen Forum. “The time is now to bring together leaders and advocates across party lines and all sectors – business, education, non-profit, philanthropy, and government — to move the needle on the challenges facing our communities. Cities and towns around the country are deploying this collaborative strategy successfully, and we’re going to ensure others can do the same,” said Barnes.

Knight Foundation175,000.0052--Technology, Journalismhttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/4018-- Grant period: 12/01/2006 - 12/01/2008; goal: To help national media policy makers understand community media issues by holding roundtables and a conference The Aspen Institute convenes leaders to discuss their foremost challenges. In America today, local media face challenges as large as anyone's. Their audiences are fragmenting, shifting from boundary-spanning traditional media to media that is online, targeted or free. National policy, which sets the rules under which local media can thrive or wither, also is in a period of transition, with media consolidation, "localism," and "net neutrality," among the important issues. Aspen Institute will hold two roundtable sessions and conduct a “conference track’’ on policy change that would align national policy with community needs and concerns. A report will be widely distributed and posted on www.aspeninstitute.org.

Its purpose was to assess the information needs of communities, and recommend measures to help Americans better meet those needs. Its Report, Informing Communities: Sustaining Democracy in the Digital Age, was the first major commission on media since the Hutchins Commission in the 1940’s and the Kerner and Carnegie Commissions of the 1960’s. In the digital age, technological, economic and behavioral changes are dramatically altering how Americans communicate. Information is more fragmented. Communications systems no longer run along the same lines as local governance. The gap in access to digital tools and skills is wide and troubling. This new era poses major challenges to the flow of news and information people depend on to manage their complex lives.
