Harri Besceli donations made (filtered to cause areas matching Effective altruism)

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.

EA Community Building Grants - Recent Grants Made and Changes to the Application Process (GW, IR)2019-10-07Harri Besceli Centre for Effective AltruismEffective Altruism Community Building Grants Effective Altruism Community Building Grants Donee periodic updateEffective altruism/movement growthThe blog post describes changes made to Effective Altruism Community Building Grants (EA CBG) made since the last update https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/RZrikMAuTwt4e9Fs4/ea-community-building-grants-update (GW, IR) provided in October 2018. The post talks about CBG's commitment to renewing funding for past grantees, and lists some grantees that have received and accepted offers for renewed funding. Changes include: (1) a switch to rolling applications instead of grant rounds, (2) introduction of an "expression of interest" form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc_05IyYJ4fwP1YXytyKrIQMf8mH10Aappq5Dkh5H0Z6a3Ziw/viewform?usp=sf_link for prospective applicants, (3) more tailored process to the needs of different grantees. The blog post also notes that the bar for successful applicants is being raised; reasons include: (1) increasing th focus on the best grantmaking opportunities, based on learnings from the last year of grantmaking, (2) leaving room for future changes to the programme, (3) limited available funding (since funding will rely more on external donors now), (4) prioritising other aspects of the programme, (5) increasing financial reserves, (6) increased quality of granting opportunities.
