Laura and John Arnold Foundation donations made (filtered to cause areas matching Education)

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 December 2019. 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.

Behind a Big Bet by Top K-12 Philanthropists on a Different Way to Run Schools2018-08-09Caitlin Reilly Inside PhilanthropyLaura and John Arnold Foundation Hastings Fund The City Fund Third-party coverage of donor strategyEducationThe article describes the setting up of The City Fund, which is seeded with money from the Hastings Fund (a fund with the wealth of Netflix founder Reed Hastings) and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.

The article relies on conversations with Neerav Kingsland, a Senior Education Fellow at the Arnold Foundation
