Generation Citizen 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 Foundation190,000.004--Communitieshttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/5358-- Grant period: 05/01/2013 - 12/31/2014; goal: To test in one Knight community the Generation Citizen program that places college students in high school classrooms to teach civics courses focused on solving problems in the teens' own communities Since its founding in 2008, Generation Citizen has helped over 10,000 students become change-makers in their communities. Its innovative “action civics” curriculum partners college students with high school teachers to educate teens about solving problems in their communities community and contributing to an active democracy. The organization currently operates in Boston, Providence, R.I., and New York; as part of the new funding it will expand to San Jose, Calif. and one other community where Knight invests. Additionally, Knight’s support will be used to help Generation Citizen strengthen and improve their work through a new program that aims to provide youth with real-world skills and technology tools so they can take more direct action on community issues they care about—from gang violence to public transit and teen jobs. As part of a pilot program, Generation Citizen will work with 10,000 students in 2013-14 in two Knight communities. Participants will be connected with mentors who help them implement their ideas for change. The expansion of Generation Citizen’s model will be supported […].
