Sophie Monahan 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.

No Lean Season--2017-12-11Seasonal intracountry migrationhttps://blog.givewell.org/2017/12/11/staff-members-personal-donations-for-giving-season-2017/#SophieGiveWell The donor selected this charity because of more interest in reducing near-term poverty for adults and children, even though GiveWell met the most critical room for more funding needs. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
GiveDirectly--2016-12-09Cash transfershttps://blog.givewell.org/2016/12/09/staff-members-personal-donations-giving-season-2016/GiveWell Some differences with GiveWell re: cost-effectiveness estimates. Believes all charities recommended by GiveWell are roughly equal, but GiveWell prioritizes GiveDirectly lowest. Hence, donating to GiveDirectly. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
Against Malaria Foundation--2015-12-09Global health/malariahttps://blog.givewell.org/2015/12/09/staff-members-personal-donations-for-giving-season-2015/GiveWell Following GiveWell recommendation, does not believe there is information that gives her reason to do better than overall GiveWell recommendation. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.
