Good Ventures/GiveWell top and standout charities 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 (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. See the about page for more details.

Miscellaneous notes: These are grants to GiveWell top charities and standout charities, generally announced near year-end (late November) and made between December and March. Sometimes, grants are made mid-year as well. Grant details are usually cross-posted between the GiveWell blog, Good Ventures grants database, and Open Philanthropy Project grants database, with the GiveWell blog providing the best context for the decision on the amount of money spent. We use the URL and data from the Good Ventures grants database as the authoritative source for the grant date
