Rutgers University Foundation 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 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 Foundation2,000,000.002--Communitieshttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/3999-- Grant period: 12/04/2006 - 12/31/2011; goal: To construct the Knight Early Learning Research Academy in Camden, offering a collection of model services for improving early childhood education, raising the possibility the Academy will set the standard for early childhood education in New Jersey. The goal of this project is to develop a proposal that details how the early childhood literacy program of the Rutgers/LEAP early childhood initiative will be implemented over the following three years. LEAP will observe centers contracting with the Camden Board of Education and rate them using the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale (ECERS). Based on the ratings, LEAP will choose which centers to partner with during the pilot phase, and parents will be surveyed to understand their involvement and interest in center activities. As a result of this project there will be a plan for implementing and evaluating a comprehensive early literacy and leadership development initiative targeted at Camden early childhood centers.
