GiveWell top charities 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 December 2019. 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.

My 2018 donations2019-01-20Ben Kuhn Ben Kuhn Effective Altruism Funds Ben Kuhn donor-advised fund GiveWell GiveWell top charities Ben Kuhn donor-advised fund Effective Altruism Funds Periodic donation list documentationGlobal health and developmentKuhn describes his decision to allocate his donation amount ($70,000, calculated as 50% of his income for the year) between GiveWell, GiveWell top charities, and his own donor-advised fund managed by Fidelity. Kuhn also discusses how he has been out of the loop of the latest developments in effective altruism, which is part of the reason his grants for this year are so boring. However, he is happy with recent management changes and increased grantmaking activity from the Effective Altruism Funds, and they are currently his default choice of where to allocate money from his donor-advised fund in 2019, if he does not find a better donation target. Kuhn also discusses some logistical aspects of his donation, such as: need to make some of his 2018 donations in 2019 and use of the donor-advised fund to channel his donation to GiveWell

Approaches to Moral Weights: How GiveWell Compares to Other Actors2017-11-07GiveWell GiveWell top charities Deworm the World Initiative Schistosomiasis Control Initiative Against Malaria Foundation Malaria Consortium GiveDirectly Evaluator quantification approachIn-depth look at how the way GiveWell uses moral weights in cost-effectiveness analyses (such as the value of saving lives) compares with the way governments and others in public policy use it. One difference is that the target population GiveWell deals with is often in low and middle income countries (LMIC) for which estimates of the value of a life saved are more murky. The document also talks of the different moral weights associated with saving people at different ages. See https://blog.givewell.org/2017/11/07/how-givewell-and-mainstream-policymakers-compare-the-good-achieved-by-different-programs/ for a blog post by Josh Rosenberg announcing and summarizing the report.

Ben Kuhn12,600.0042019-01-20--https://www.benkuhn.net/ea/GiveWell See https://www.benkuhn.net/giving-2018 for more context. Although the donation was made in January 2019, it is considered part of the donation for 2018; the reason for making the donation in 2019 was due to fewer liquid finances in December to make the donation. The total donation amount for the year of $70,000 was calculated as 50% of total income for the year. The allocation of $12,600 was calculated as 18% of the total donation amount. Logistics-wise, the donation was made via the donor-advised fund, and along with the donation of $1,400 to GiveWell (i.e., a donation of $14,000 was made to GiveWell with 10% marked as an unrestricted donation to GiveWell). Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 18.00%.

Ben Kuhn12,600.0042017-12-30--https://www.benkuhn.net/ea/GiveWell See https://www.benkuhn.net/giving-2017 for more context. The total donation amount of $60,000 was calculated as 50% of total income for the year. The intended allocation to GiveWell top charities was 18% (which would be $10,800) but due to a miscalculation, a little more was allocated. After accounting for the employer match of $10,000 for another donations, the donation amount worked out to 18% of the total donation (including employer match) for the year. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 21.00%.

I am grateful for all the work, thoughtfulness, and hours of debate that my colleagues put into the recommendations, and I believe that the recommendations are as strong as they’ve ever been. I am excited to support the most effective charities I know of.".

Natalie Crispin----2014-12-17Global health and cash transfershttps://blog.givewell.org/2014/12/17/staff-members-personal-donations-giving-season-2014/-- Crispin notes: "I plan to follow GiveWell’s recommended allocation this year by giving a gift to GiveWell for regranting to top charities at its discretion. Allocating funding between charities involves complicated trade-offs on many different dimensions: program cost-effectiveness, confidence in the organization’s ability to carry out the program, confidence in the organization’s ability to spend funds in the near term, judgements about the upside and risks of helping an organization scale up, etc.". Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.

Eric Friedman31,000.0022010--https://blog.givewell.org/2011/06/21/guest-post-from-eric-friedman/-- Relevant quote: Eventually, we decided that there was one fundamental principle we should apply: giving was primarily about helping the less fortunate, not our friendships or personal interests. Breaking up with Freedom from Hunger would be hard. I explained our reasoning and they took it in stride, demonstrating that they care more about the less fortunate than their own institutional growth. They are a good group. But in 2010, we gave about $31,000 to GiveWell’s donor advised fund to ultimately be distributed as they recommended.
