Texas Tribune 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.

The core product of the Texas Tribune will be its destination web site, www.texastribune.org. The site will blend text reporting with the newest presentation and visualization tools; audio and video; original source documents; highly curated news aggregation from other sources; and proprietary, searchable databases. Texas Tribune will produce events and specialized publications, and plans to syndicate content to other online, print and broadcast news outlets. In addition, Texas Tribune will document best practices – both on the editorial and business side -- and share them with the larger news community, including other Knight grantees, through the new Investigative Reporting Network. Texas Tribune will help fill the new void in the amount of quality statewide news coverage in Texas, the nation’s second most populous state. They expect to reach its growth targets and become a sustainable model for other statewide news sites to follow. The Texas project will collaborate with other Knight projects in California, New York, and Washington, […].
