Ball State University 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.

Knight Foundation850,000.001--Technology, Journalismhttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/3830-- Grant period: 09/20/2005 - 07/31/2008; goal: To raise First Amendment appreciation, promote media literacy and encourage student media in high schools On Jan. 31, 2005, Knight released “The Future of the First Amendment,” a two-year, $1 million research project by the University of Connecticut. The national study, the largest of its kind, surveyed 112,000 students, nearly 8,000 teachers and more than 500 principals. It found that only half the nation’s high school students agree that the nation’s press should be able to publish without government interference. The survey reinforced support for Knight’s High School Journalism Initiative, which works with major journalism groups to help revitalize high school journalism and help students better understand the role of the First Amendment. With this grant, Ball State will train, coordinate and campaign to improve First Amendment education, use of news in classrooms and student media. It will hold workshops reaching 1,000 educators. It will coordinate meetings of scholastic media leaders and educators to find ways they can work together to change education policy. See firstamendment.jideas.org.
