Chan Zuckerberg Initiative donations made

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.

How Life Sciences Actually Work: Findings of a Year-Long Investigation (GW, IR)2019-08-16Alexey Guzey Effective Altruism ForumNational Institutes of Health Howard Hughes Medical Institute Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Open Philanthropy Amgen Life Sciences Research Foundation Harvard University Massachusetts Institute of Technology Stanford University Review of current state of cause areaBiomedical researchGuzey surveys the current state of biomedical research, primarily in academia in the United States. His work is the result of interviewing about 60 people. Emergent Ventures provided financial support. His takeaways: (1) Life science is not slowing down (2) Nothing works the way you would naively think it does (for better or for worse) (3) If you're smart and driven, you'll find a way in (4) Nobody cares if you're a genius (5) Almost all biologists are solo founders. This is probably suboptimal (6) There's insufficient space for people who just want to be researchers and not managers (7) Peer review is a disaster (8) Nobody agrees on whether big labs are good or bad (9) Senior scientists are bound by their students' incentives (10) Universities seem to maximize their profits, with good research being a side-effect (11) Large parts of modern scientific literature are wrong (12) Raising money is very difficult even for famous scientists. Final conclusion: "academia has a lot of problems but it's less broken than it seems from the outside."
Has the Giving Pledge Changed Giving? A proposal unveiled nearly a decade ago was intended to turbocharge philanthropy. There’s little evidence so far it’s doing that.2019-06-04Marc Gunther Chronicle of PhilanthropyWarren Buffett Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Bloomberg Philanthropies Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Dalio Philanthropies George Lucas and Mellody Hobson Good Ventures Open Philanthropy Simons Foundation Miscellaneous commentaryIn a long-form article for the Chronicle of Philanthropy, Marc Gunther describes the history of the Giving Pledge, created ten years ago at a meeting including Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffett, Ted Turner, Michael Bloomberg, Charles Feeney, George Soros, Eli Broad, and Oprah Winfrey. Gunther writes that the Giving Pledge has failed to increase the overall level of charitable giving in general, and has not inspired much more charitable giving even among the superrich, to whom it was targeted. The article says that fewer than one in six billionaires in the United States have taken the pledge, and moreover, many of those who took the pledge had either already given or already been planning to give large amounts to charity, so the counterfactual impact of the pledge was low. The article includes a table of the current net worth and total donations so far by the wealthiest signatories of the Giving Pledge, as well as profiles of several Giving Pledge signatories.

The Outdated Study That Education Reformers Keep Citing2018-01-30Matt Barnum The AtlanticChan Zuckerberg Initiative Todd Rose New Schools Venture Fund Miscellaneous commentaryEducationArticle discusses CZI’s reliance on Bloom’s 2 sigma problem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom%27s_2_Sigma_Problem to justify its “personalized learning” approach to education reform. The article criticizes Bloom’s widely-cited paper for its sample size (“just three schools and a few hundred students”); for being outdated (so that the control group of “traditional instruction” “may have substantially changed”); because final tests appear to have been researcher-created rather than being standardized tests; and because the paper focused on traditional tutoring rather than the technology-based tutoring that CZI advocates.
