Eastern Market Corporation 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.

Knight Foundation250,000.007--Communitieshttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/6384-- Grant period: 06/15/2014 - 03/15/2015; goal: To complete a planning process with longstanding and new stakeholders, to leverage and build upon infrastructure improvements of Detroit's central open-air market - ultimately improving Detroit's core city vibrancy. Eastern Market has served as a central source of fresh food for Detroit-area residents since 1891, attracting more than 2 million visitors annually. It provides a home for a wide variety of businesses and employment opportunities, as well as a meeting and work place for city residents of all backgrounds. In recent years, Eastern Market has seen significant growth and investment, including current work for streetscape, infrastructure and building improvements. With Knight funding, Eastern Market Corp. will begin a planning process and community conversation to build on development efforts that began in 2008 with the completion of an Eastern Market District development strategy. Support will go to assembling a team of local and international experts to update and enhance the 2008 strategy, taking into account Detroit’s changing landscape and city-wide revitalization efforts.
