Hong Kong Veg Society 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.

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: The grant page says: "Veg outreach in Hong Kong. Hong Kong Veg Society works on a variety of programs, including their student ambassador program, online vegan challenge, and work to ensure that restaurants offer veg options."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: Grant page offers these reasons: (1) Possibly the highest rate of meat and seafood consumption worldwide. (2) Potential as a gateway into China, which may be the most important country in the wold for farmed animals. (3) Local philanthropy in Hong Kong is focused elsewhere, so there is a budget gap that the Animal Welfare Fund can fill

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): No reason given for precise amount, but the grant page says: "With local philanthropic spending within Hong Kong focused elsewhere, there’s a gap in the Hong Kong Veg Society’s budget to which we are happy to contribute." The amount is likely determined based on the budget gap
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 2.27%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Timing determined by timing of grant round Affected countries: Hong Kong.
Effective Altruism Funds: Animal Welfare Fund20,000.0012018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8ELewis Bollard Donation process: Part of the June 2018 grant round disbursing $1,205,000. More specifically, it is part of $305,000 granted within the "International grassroots groups" category

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: Grant for "Veg outreach in Hong Kong"

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The grant page says: "Hong Kong is a relatively small region to target (7.3M people) with few farm animals (1.7M land animals). But it has the world’s highest rate of meat and seafood consumption and, as part of China, offers an opening into the most important country in the world for the future of farm animal welfare. There are multiple groups working to promote veg eating and farm animal welfare in Hong Kong, and we plan to investigate them more thoroughly soon. In the meantime, this grant will help a group recommended by several people familiar with the Hong Kong scene to extend its grassroots activism."

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Timing determined by timing of grant round

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: The grant page says: "There are multiple groups working to promote veg eating and farm animal welfare in Hong Kong, and we plan to investigate them more thoroughly soon." This suggests the possibility that, after investigation, the Animal Welfare Fund may grant more to Hong Kong Veg Society, or may stop granting to it, supporting other groups instead

Donor retrospective of the donation: The donor would make a followup $10,000 grant in July 2019 https://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/6RriulfZ0A4OB6BpirdYe8 and offer similar reasoning for the followup grant Affected countries: Hong Kong; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
