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 Foundation||35,000.00||1||--||Technology, Journalism||https://knightfoundation.org/grants/4232||--||Grant period: 10/01/2007 - 01/31/2009; goal: To increase multicultural journalism education through a conference that will create a best practices book and a popular web site This project will create a best practices book on journalism and mass communication schools with the greatest record of success in understanding and teaching about news and newsroom diversity. The book will have recommendations on how to implement similar programs at other schools, and be a resource guide for programs interested in improving their diversity records. About 2,000 copies of the book will be sent to journalism schools and professional journalism organizations. The book also will be posted on the Manship School of Mass Communication’s web site, Mass Communicating: the Forum on Media Diversity (www.masscommunicating.lsu.edu). It is expected that the project will increase the teaching of media diversity in U.S. journalism schools and help develop a Rainbow School Network, a consortium of schools that will work together nationally on behalf of diversity. Ultimately, this grant aims to increase diversity in newsrooms and in news coverage.|
