Partners for Sacred Places 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, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Knight Foundation180,000.00--Arts Grant period: 04/02/2012 - 04/01/2014; part of the challenge: Knight Arts Challenge; goal: To expand the capacity of the city's theater community by providing a new space for theater designers and visual artists at a decommissioned church Summary: To expand the capacity of Philadelphia’s theater community, Partners for Sacred Places will provide a new space for theater designers and visual artists at a spacious local church. By providing office, storage, construction and implementation space, as well as the opportunity to share equipment, the space will naturally promote more collaboration, labor efficiency and a greener approach to theatrical productions. The project will also offer storage space for standard size flats and platforms, costumes and props while helping to preserve and repurpose a much beloved and endangered church, giving it a future value to the community. Earmark: Philadelphia Theatrical Design Center.
