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.
We do not have any donee information for the donee Generation Pledge in our system.

The grant page says: "7 of the 9 grantees in this round applied through this process." It is not clear whether Generation Pledge is one of the 7 that applied
Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support
Intended use of funds: The grant page says: "Generation Pledge mirrors the Founders Pledge model, but working with next gens rather than founders. The world's ultra high net worth families collectively own $31.5 trillion. Several thousand next gens will inherit this wealth. Generation Pledge aims to support those next gens to maximise their social impact."
Donor reason for selecting the donee: The grant page says: "[I]n the past few months they have grown their pledger community significantly. They have an expected pledge value of over $300 million, with a number of sensible discount factors applied. We think that these positive updates are enough to justify Generation Pledge being funded through to a later stage, where they will have the opportunity to prove they can turn these pledges into donations to effective charities."
Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The grant page says: "This grant will contribute towards Generation Pledge's immediate funding gap for 2019, giving them more runway to fundraise and further grow their pledger base."
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 6.44%
Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Timing determined by timing of grant round, as well as by the progress made by Generation Pledge in getting $300 million pledged
Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: The grant page talks of a "later stage, where they will have the opportunity to prove they can turn these pledges into donations to effective charities." It is likely that Generation Pledge will be considered for further grants if it is able to turn donations to pledges
