One for the World 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.

Our Position Regarding Recent Revelations Of Serious Misconduct At Oxfam2018-03-02Rossa O'Keeffe-O'Donovan One for the World Oxfam Evaluator update on doneeGlobal health and developmentOne for the World discusses recent misconduct allegations against Oxfam staff in Haiti in 2011, and potential mishandling of the allegations by Oxfam. Oxfam is in the portfolio of One for the World, though not in the top picks; the blog post says they are monitoring the situation but are not immediately removing Oxfam from the portfolio. It links to a related blog post by The Life You Can Save at https://www.thelifeyoucansave.org/blog/id/1412/safeguards-are-essential-in-all-workplaces-including-nonprofits (One for the World included Oxfam in the portfolio based on The Life You Can Save including it)

It is accompanied by a grant from the Open Philanthropy Project of $153,750 (so the two grants are in a 3:1 ratio) also influenced by GiveWell. As of the time of entering this, the grant from the Open Philanthropy Project is not listed in the Open Philanthropy Project grants database. Also, the GiveWell page on the grant does not explicitly name either donor. The two grants together are expected to cover two years of costs, including budget for a COO (which they succeeded in doing: Evan McVail joined as COO for a year) and a CEO in 2019.
