Free Migration Project 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, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Vipul Naik3,000.0022019-12-22Migration policy Donation process: End-of-year donation made from a perspective of semi-obligation

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The donation log page says: "I thought of this as a one-time donation to discharge my responsibility as a board member to financially support the organization, given my limitations in contributing in other ways."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): Explaining the amount, the donation log page says: "I see it as the equivalent of sending $500/year for 6 years, which is the duration of my board tenure."
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Explaining the timing, the donation log page says: "There isn't a very specific reason for the timing, other than the fact that at the end of the year, I'm thinking about donation opportunities and in particular looking at donations that I have some sense of "obligation" to make."

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: The donation page log says: "I'm not planning to make a followup donation in the near future, since this donation discharges my responsibility; any further donation decisions will be based on the same sort of extensive analysis that I subjected my EA Hotel donation to."
