Research Foundation of the City University of New York 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.

Knight Foundation250,000.00--Technology, Journalismhttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/4583-- Grant period: 06/01/2009 - 06/30/2010; goal: For the New Business Models for News Project, to openly produce detailed business plans that will be used to create sustainable models for the future of news While print journalism has largely set the news agenda for the rest of the industry, traditional business and distribution models are no longer viable on their own. Quality news content benefits society as a whole, but is expensive to produce and a growing number of organizations are declaring bankruptcy or shutting down their print operations entirely. The opportunity here is to experiment with new, different business models to create ways of sustaining journalism as it rapidly changes in the 21st century media environment. This grant will bring together editors, publishers, entrepreneurs, technologists, investors, business strategists and consulting experts to openly build and publish three new business plans for 21st century journalism. These plans will focus on hyperlocal, city-metro and paid-content models, with all work being progressively shared on the web through blogs, Google Docs, video and open discussions. This grant will result in at least three complete business plans focusing on hyperlocal, city-metro and paid-content models. These models will be grounded in real-life examples and cases, including existing Knight News Challenge projects. All […]. Earmark: New Business Models for News Project.
