University of Missouri 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 Foundation2,280,000.001--Technology, Journalismhttps://knightfoundation.org/grants/3837-- Grant period: 09/20/2005 - 06/30/2011; goal: To establish a new home for the Committee of Concerned Journalists and move it toward self-sufficiency Since 1997, in conversations with thousands of journalists, the Committee of Concerned Journalists has crusaded on behalf of quality journalism as defined in the signature book, “The Elements of Journalism.” In 2001, a Knight pilot grant created the “Traveling Curriculum,’’ a training program designed to take the committee’s standard-setting work directly into newsrooms. The training, designed with teaching experts at Stanford University, has reached some 5,500 journalists from 100 news organizations. The web site, www.journalism.org, averages 32,000 unique visitors a month. Training sessions are followed by six-month reviews to push for and review tangible results. A formal assessment program by researchers at Stanford has established concrete changes at every newsroom to date. With this grant, the committee will move to the University of Missouri. There, it will train at least 4,000 additional journalists during the next three years as it develops a “fee for service” model for the training.
