Google.org donations made (filtered to cause areas matching Hiring)

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.

Brief history: Founded in October 2005 as the charity arm of tech giant Google

Brief notes on broad donor philosophy and major focus areas: Stated focus areas of education, economic opportunity, inclusion, and crisis response. See https://www.google.org/our-work/ for more details

Notes on grant publication logistics: Most grants do not have individual grant pages, but the biggest ones do. Google.org has a JS-heavy site where they list their donations. We did not find a way to programmatically process the donations. We manually entered all their donations at some point in time, but are not incrementally updating in a scalable way right now
