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||--||--||--||Technology, Journalism||https://knightfoundation.org/grants/4990||--||Grant period: 05/29/2013 - 05/29/2014; goal: Videolicious makes an app that allows users to easily create videos from their mobile phones. From TechCrunch: [Videolicious] has raised $2.25 million from investors that include Washington Post Company, Amazon.com, and the Knight Foundation. The round was led by Venture51 and Social Leverage, and includes existing investors such as Joanne Wilson, Trestle Ventures, and Quotidian Ventures. The company has now raised more than $4 million to date. The funding comes as Videolicious has placed a big bet on getting journalists to sign up and use the app, a bet that seems to be paying off. More than 100 newspapers, magazines, and TV stations have signed up in the last few months, getting their journalists to use the app to quickly create video news reports while out in the field. The Washington Post, for instance, was one of the first news organizations to begin using the app, and now has 30 reporters on the app.|
