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.

|12,600.00||1||--||https://www.benkuhn.net/ea/||GiveWell||See https://www.benkuhn.net/giving-2018 for more context. Although the donation was made in January 2019, it is considered part of the donation for 2018; the reason for making the donation in 2019 was due to fewer liquid finances in December to make the donation. The total donation amount for the year of $70,000 was calculated as 50% of total income for the year. The allocation of $12,600 was calculated as 18% of the total donation amount. Logistics-wise, the donation was made via the donor-advised fund, and along with the donation of $1,400 to GiveWell (i.e., a donation of $14,000 was made to GiveWell with 10% marked as an unrestricted donation to GiveWell). Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.|
|12,600.00||1||--||https://www.benkuhn.net/ea/||GiveWell||See https://www.benkuhn.net/giving-2017 for more context. The total donation amount of $60,000 was calculated as 50% of total income for the year. The intended allocation to GiveWell top charities was 18% (which would be $10,800) but due to a miscalculation, a little more was allocated. After accounting for the employer match of $10,000 for another donations, the donation amount worked out to 18% of the total donation (including employer match) for the year. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%.|
