Syracuse University 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 Foundation160,000.0015--Technology, Journalismhttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/3954-- Grant period: 04/01/2006 - 05/31/2007; goal: To increase the impact of TRACFED, a database of government actions used nationally by news media In 1997, Knight funds launched a web service called TRACFED. Run by Syracuse University, this service has become one of the web’s most important public storehouses of facts and figures about how the federal government enforces the law, where it assigns employees, and how it spends its money. Through this grant, TRAC will increase its earned income through new information products and expanded marketing and solicit monetary and in-kind contributions. It will also seek a range of partnerships to fund authoritative reports on special interest topics.
