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.

|Open Philanthropy||250,000.00||2||Animal welfare/factory farming/chicken/fish||https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/compassion-exit-grant-2019||Amanda Hungerford||Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses
Intended use of funds: Grant "to support farm animal welfare outreach and investigations related to chickens and fish. The new funding represents an “exit grant” that will provide Compassion Over Killing with approximately one year of operating support to allow them to secure other funding."
Donor reason for selecting the donee: The donor had previously supported the donee in 2016 https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/compassion-over-killing-us-broiler-welfare-campaigns The new grant is an exit grant to give the donee time to find other sources of funding.
Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): Likely selected as a reasonable amount for a one-year exit grant.
Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Timing likely determined by the end of the previous grant, and the need to provide more funding for a smooth exit grant.
Intended funding timeframe in months: 12
Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: There will be no next donation; this is an exit grant.
