Effective Altruism Funds 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.

My 2018 donations2019-01-20Ben Kuhn Ben Kuhn Effective Altruism Funds Ben Kuhn donor-advised fund GiveWell GiveWell top charities Ben Kuhn donor-advised fund Effective Altruism Funds Periodic donation list documentationGlobal health and developmentKuhn describes his decision to allocate his donation amount ($70,000, calculated as 50% of his income for the year) between GiveWell, GiveWell top charities, and his own donor-advised fund managed by Fidelity. Kuhn also discusses how he has been out of the loop of the latest developments in effective altruism, which is part of the reason his grants for this year are so boring. However, he is happy with recent management changes and increased grantmaking activity from the Effective Altruism Funds, and they are currently his default choice of where to allocate money from his donor-advised fund in 2019, if he does not find a better donation target. Kuhn also discusses some logistical aspects of his donation, such as: need to make some of his 2018 donations in 2019 and use of the donor-advised fund to channel his donation to GiveWell

Donation Post: 20182019-01-03Ozy Brennan Ozy Brennan Longevity Research Institute Evidence Action Effective Altruism Funds Periodic donation list documentationGlobal health and development|Scientific research|Animal welfareThe blog post describes Ozy Brennan's donations for 2018, along with an explanation of the selection of each donee. The high-level explanation: "This year I am splitting my donations between the Animal Welfare Fund (animals), Evidence Action (global poverty), and the Longevity Research Institute (anti-aging). I’m taking basically the same approach with all three places I’m donating this year. I am not donating to particular programs that I think are high impact, such as malaria nets or cellular agriculture. Instead, I’m delegating my donation decisions to particular people or organizations. In two cases, I’m betting on a specific person that I have reason to believe is more informed, has better judgment, and is generally capable of making better decisions than me. In a third case, Evidence Action, I’m betting on an organization’s process and epistemics: while I know little about their current charities, I’m impressed by their transparency and commitment to admitting when things they’re trying may not work."

However, the Long-Term Future Fund and EA Community Fund, both managed by Nick Beckstead, have announced only one payout, and have missed their self-imposed date for announcing the remaining payouts. Some comments by Marek Duda of the Centre for Effective Altruism (the parent of EA Funds) are also discussed
Update on Partnerships with External Donors2018-05-16Holden Karnofsky Open Philanthropy ProjectOpen Philanthropy Project Future Justice Fund Accountable Justice Action Fund Effective Altruism Funds Accountable Justice Action Fund Effective Altruism Funds Miscellaneous commentaryCriminal justice reform,Animal welfareThe Open Philanthropy Project describes how it works with donors other than Good Ventures (the foundation under Dustin Moskovitz and Cari Tuna that accounts for almost all Open Phil grantmaking). The blog post reiterates that the long-term goal is to inform many different funders, but that is not a short-term priority because the Open Philanthropy Project is not moving enough money to even achieve the total spend that Good Ventures is willing to go up to. The post mentions that Chloe Cockburn, the program officer for criminal justice reform, is working with other funders in criminal justice reform, and they have created a separate vehicle, the Accountable Justice Action Fund, to pool resources. Also, Mike and Kaitlyn Krieger, who previously worked with the Open Philanthropy Project, now have their own criminal justice-focused Future Justice Fund, and are getting help from Cockburn to allocate money from the fund. For causes outside of criminal justice reform, the role of Effective Altruism Funds (whose grantmaking is managed by Open Philanthropy Project staff members) is mentioned. Also, Lewis Bollard is said to have moved ~10% as much money through advice to other donors as he has moved through the Open Philanthropy Project

Ozy Brennan----2019-01-03Animal welfarehttps://thingofthings.wordpress.com/2019/01/03/donation-post-2018/-- Donation is to the Animal Welfare Fund (of the four Funds labeled Effective Altruism Funds). The donor, Ozy Brennan, had past experience interacting with Lewis Bollard, chair of the Animal Welfare Fund, at the time they were evaluating Wild-Animal Suffering Research (WASR), when Ozy used to work there. Ozy was impressed by Bollard's thoughtful approach during the grantmaking process, and continues to be impressed by the grants made by the Animal Welfare Fund, which are innovative, geographically diverse, and hard for small donors to find. Ozy identifies the following characteristics for other people who may be interested in donating to the Animal Welfare Fund: (a) People who prioritize animal welfare and do not think we should concentrate on persuading people to be vegan/vegetarian. (b) People who support "weird EA" animal causes.
