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 (see his commits) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; please do not share this data without consulting with Vipul Naik. We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of December 2018.

|Against Malaria Foundation||4,400,000.00||Global health/malaria||http://blog.givewell.org/2017/04/03/allocation-of-discretionary-funds/||--||Blog posts announces $4.4 million grant to AMF from the funds GiveWell has for discretionary regranting. This is because AMF has the largest remaining Execution Level 1 gap based on the funding gaps identified in November 2016, and reports of funds raised as of February 2017. An additional $0.5 million is being granted to Deworm the World Initiative, and GiveWell recommends that donors giving now should donate all their money to the Against Malaria Foundation.|
|Deworm the World Initiative||500,000.00||Global health/deworming||http://blog.givewell.org/2017/04/03/allocation-of-discretionary-funds/||--||Blog posts announces $0.5 million to Deworm the World Initiative from the funds GiveWell has for discretionary regranting, to fill most of an unfilled $0.53 million Execution Level 2 funding gap. This is out of a total of $4.9 million in granted money (the remaining $4.4 million went to the Against Malaria Foundation, with the highest priority of funding gap). The funding to Deworm the World Initiative was decided over other alternatives, including Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, the END Fund, GiveDirectly, Malaria Consortium, and Sightsavers.|
The following table uses the Jaccard index and cosine similarity to compare the similarity of donors. We are showing the top 14 donors by the Jaccard index because we show up to 30 donors and show only donors with at least one donee in common.
