Public Welfare Foundation 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.

Brief history: The Public Welfare Foundation was founded in 1947. It was overseen by Charles E. Marsh till 1953, then by his wife till 1974

Brief notes on broad donor philosophy and major focus areas: The three historical main areas were criminal justice reform, youth justice, and worker rights. In 2011 it added a special initiative for civil legal aid. All initiatives seem restricted to the United States

Notes on grant decision logistics: Grant applications have to be submitted through a process described at http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/apply-for-a-grant/ and http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/ and have to fit within the program guidelines described at http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/program-guidelines/

Notes on grant publication logistics: Grants are published on the grants page http://www.publicwelfare.org/grants-process/our-grants/ where they can be filtered by category and by fiscal year. Pages on individual grants are not published

Miscellaneous notes: The foundation was included because it has been mentioned by the Open Philanthropy Project as one of the important funders of criminal justice reform in the United States, see for instance https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/criminal-justice-reform/criminal-justice-reform-strategy
