Charity Entrepreneurship 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 Funds75,000.0062018-12-30Animal welfare/charity incubation Cargill Toni Adleberg Jamie Spurgeon Lewis Bollard Grant to support the incubation of promising new animal welfare charities. In 2019, the Charity Entrepreneurship incubation program will be focused on the broad cause area of animal welfare. They aim to connect talented individuals with high-impact charity opportunities, and provide them with the means to fulfill these opportunities. Currently, they are funded to award ~3 grants of ~$50k. They are able to give out up to $500k (5 $100k grants) in the best case but forecast giving out $300k on more realistic timelines. They claim that larger seed grants will increase the number of applicants and will also provide them with a more preferable level of stability, allowing them to focus more heavily on long-term impact and prioritise planning over fundraising. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 21.99%.
Effective Altruism Funds14,000.0042018-11-29Charity incubation Ding Alex Foster Denise Melchin Matt Wage Tara MacAulay Grant to support the incubation of new charities, which the donor believes to be highly valuable. The write-up concludes: "Marginal donations will allow Charity Entrepreneurship to expand the number of applicants they can accept to the program and give larger seed grants. The latter is likely to increase both the number of people applying and the level of stability at which the new charities start off, allowing them to focus more on long-term impact rather than short-term fundraising.". Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 10.85%.
