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.

Knight Foundation15,000.002--Technology, Journalism Grant period: 08/01/2007 - 08/01/2008; goal: To create a blog on covering nonprofits for Knight training alumni Professor Burnis Morris directs a program at Marshall University to train journalists how to cover nonprofits. Journalists and the public know little about nonprofits and philanthropy. Yet the U.S. nonprofit sector is the sixth largest economy in the world, with assets of $1.76 trillion. This grant will enable Professor Burnis Morris to create and run the first blog for journalists who cover nonprofits and philanthropy issues. Alumni from training courses at the University of Maryland’s Knight Center for Specialized Journalism will participate.
Knight Foundation166,667.001--Technology, Journalism Grant period: 11/01/2005 - 11/01/2006; goal: To move training for journalists who cover nonprofit organizations to Marshall University Many journalists know little about nonprofits, though they make up the third major sector of the economy. In 2003, for example, giving by the nation’s nearly 65,000 grant-making foundations totaled nearly $30 billion. Professor Burnis Morris has been training journalists how to cover nonprofits since 2001 under Knight Foundation sponsorship. The program, previously run at the University of Mississippi, is now at Marshall, where Morris is the Carter G. Woodson Professor. This grant will expand his program with traveling training and web efforts, so it can reach hundreds more journalists who want to cover nonprofits more effectively.
