Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation donations made to Cornell University

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.

Brief history: The Gates Foundation launched in 2000, with precursors starting in the 1990s, financed by the personal wealth of co-founder Bill Gates from Microsoft. Starting 2005, it scaled up its giving significantly after a large funding commitment from Warren Buffett

Brief notes on broad donor philosophy and major focus areas: See https://www.gatesfoundation.org/Who-We-Are/General-Information/Foundation-Factsheet for the grantmaking areas. The four grantmaking areas are the Global Development Program, Global Health Program, Global Policy and Advocacy, and United States Program. Within the United States Program the focus is on K-12 education, the Internet, and emergency relief

Notes on grant publication logistics: Although the Gates Foundation has a grants database on its website, as well as individual grant pages for every grant, we use the IATI data instead, because it can be processed programmatically (the data on the site does not allow for full data download or easy programmatic processing). This leads to a few problems: first, IATI data does not include grants made in the United States, since it focuses on development assistance (DA) spending. Second, IATI data is updated more infrequently. Third, it may sometimes omit some information that is present in the grants database

100,000.002010-10-07Global health/Tuberculosis controlhttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to test the hypothesis that Mtb’s ability to enter, dwell in, and exit from, “latency” (modled by non-replicating physiology) is mediated by the reversible assembly and disassembly of specific, physically compartmentalized, metabolic structures; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: Developing countries, unspecified.
100,000.002010-09-24Global health/Tuberculosis controlhttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to define/identify in Mtb exiting latency: the identity and distribution of irreversibly oxidized proteins; the relative growth rates of senescent and rejuvenant lineages; and the genes controlling the asymmetric distribution; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: Developing countries, unspecified.
500,000.002009-11-16Global health/malariahttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to promote a consumer, market-based process for preventing malaria infection among at-risk populations; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: South of Sahara.
100,000.002009-10-09Global health/malariahttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to test the hypothesis that providing children high levels of flavanols, compounds found in green tea, chocolate, and shea nuts, deprives malaria parasites of lipids, keeping parasite infection at levels low enough to builds lifelong immunity; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: South of Sahara.
398,919.002009-09-21Global health/Tuberculosis controlhttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to facilitate development of new drugs against tuberculosis by developing a genetic approach that allows high-throughput evaluation of potential drug targets; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: Developing countries, unspecified.
1,797,835.002009-07-10Agriculture/agricultural education/traininghttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to promote curriculum enhancement, improved research and extension quality of scientific agricultural literature used by faculty and students in agricultural colleges and universities in sub-Saharan Africa; Aid type: Project-type interventions.

100,000.002009-02-26Global health/infectious disease controlhttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to develop strains of commensal bacteria that naturally reside in the gut to express the key chemical signals used by cholera to abort the colonization process and allow the pathogen to pass through the G.I. system without causing symptoms.; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: Developing countries, unspecified.
100,000.002009-02-26Global health/Tuberculosis controlhttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to test the theory that tuberculosis utilizes metabolosomes, which are protein-based metabolic structures, to enter into, maintain, and exit from latency. Understanding how metabolosomes work will aid in development of drugs that target TB.; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: Developing countries, unspecified.
100,000.002008-10-07Global health/Medical researchhttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to use engineered microparticles to prematurely activate the fusion mechanism used by viruses to enter cells; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: Developing countries, unspecified.
100,000.002008-09-24Global health/Tuberculosis controlhttps://iatiregistry.org/publisher/bmgf-- to study how tuberculosis exits latency, which could inform novel drug therapies. A Grand Challenges Explorations grant to study how tuberculosis exits latency, which could inform novel drug therapies.. Investment start date: 10/1/2008 to end date: 9/30/2; Aid type: Project-type interventions. Affected regions: Developing countries, unspecified.
