Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation 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.

Knight Foundation802,000.002--Communities Grant period: 07/01/2012 - 07/31/2014; goal: With challenge funding, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation will help develop a network of news organizations and journalists in New Jersey, and launch creative projects to encourage more civic dialogue and participation. Given the dramatic changes in media and technology, an opportunity exists to rethink the way New Jersey news organizations can work with one another, share resources and reach broader audiences. The founding partners, which include Dodge, Montclair State University and New Jersey Public Radio, will work on a range of projects to expand coverage, engage the public and provide training and services to the news ecosystem. Selected activities include hiring reporters to focus on New Jersey issues, coordinating collaborative reporting projects, offering website-in-a-box functionality for new organizations and journalists, and developing creative community engagement projects. It will also help foster the next generation of media practitioners by providing them with training in journalism, media and business practices.

It would provide existing and new nonprofit and for-profit news and information organizations with a wide array of services, training and opportunities in a networked environment.
