Michael Levine 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 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.

Against Malaria Foundation----2017-12-18Global health/malariahttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/blog/staff-members-personal-donations-giving-season-2017#MikeGiveWell Donation of 70% to Against Malaria Foundation, consistent with the GiveWell recommendation for people who want to directly donate to GiveWell top charities (70% to Against Malaria Foundation, 30% to Schistosomiasis Control Initiative). Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 70.00%.
GiveDirectly----2017-12-18Cash transfershttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/blog/staff-members-personal-donations-giving-season-2017#MikeGiveWell Donation of 30% to GiveDirectly, which deviates from the GiveWell recommendation for people who want to directly donate to GiveWell top charities (70% to Against Malaria Foundation, 30% to Schistosomiasis Control Initiative) because, as donor states: "I see value in having direct cash transfers serve as a benchmark for other interventions, and in part because I want to signal my excitement about GiveDirectly’s new universal basic income project, even if my contribution will not meaningfully advance that specific work.". Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 30.00%.
