Wageningen University & Research 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.

At that time, we anticipated that the results of this research would help to guide our decision-making around grants to support corporate campaigns to improve the welfare of the approximately 9 billion broiler chickens raised each year in the U.S. However, due to difficulties and delays in finalizing the details of the grant, funds were only transferred in March 2017, after we had already begun to make grants to support broiler chicken welfare reforms."

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant "to create a systematic assessment of broiler chicken welfare. [...] Dr. Bracke will assess the relative importance of the various attributes that together define broiler chicken welfare. Welfare attributes are factors such as stocking density, litter quality, breed, and lighting. Depending on the results of an initial investigation, he will produce either a basic broiler chicken welfare model or a review of expert opinion."
