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.

Intended use of funds: The grant page says the grant is "over four years in scholarship funds support to Ethan Alley to pursue a PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The funding is intended to be used for his tuition, fees, healthcare, and a living stipend during his degree program
Donor reason for selecting the donee: The grant page says the grant "is part of an effort to support value-aligned and qualified early-career researchers interested in global catastrophic risks."
Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The grant page says: "The funding is intended to be used for his tuition, fees, healthcare, and a living stipend during his degree program [over four years]" so the amount is likely determined based on the sum of the costs of these over four years
Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Likely determined by the start time of the grantee's PhD program
Intended funding timeframe in months: 48
Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: The grant page calls the grant "part of an effort to support value-aligned and qualified early-career researchers interested in global catastrophic risks" so it will likely be followed by other similar grants to other researchers Announced: 2019-07-18.
