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 Foundation||5,442,500.00||1||Communities||https://knightfoundation.org/grants/6617||--||Grant period: 01/01/2015 - 12/31/2017; goal: To invest in five civic assets in neighborhoods surrounding and near Center City Philadelphia, support collaboration among those assets and fund experiments to understand the ways such assets can deliver more value by working together while fostering talent, opportunity and engagement. The investment in “Reimagining the Civic Commons” will capitalize on Philadelphia’s strengths including: a large pool of new talent, rebounding neighborhoods, a diverse population, an expanding community of civic innovators, and a growing group of people who want to live and work in the city. In addition to receiving funds to complete the building of each of these public places, the collective will collaborate on new activities and programming, share knowledge and resources, measure and document the impact of the projects on the community, and explore other lessons in civic innovation. All of these activities aim to enhance public access to these places and better integrate them into city life. The Conservancy will also manage a special fund to test new ideas across places and institutions that bring together newcomers and existing neighborhood residents, attract local business investments and economic opportunities and build public support for their work. Knight Foundation is committing $5.4 million to the project. William Penn […].|
