GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund donations made to Against Malaria Foundation

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 2023. See the about page for more details.

Brief history: GiveWell's Maximum Impact Fund began as a "discretionary regranting" option where donors could give money to GiveWell to allocate to its top charities. This differed from simply giving to GiveWell top charities using the recommended allocation, because GiveWell would determine the best use of marginal funds at the time of each regrant decision. GiveWell began highlighting discretionary regranting with https://blog.givewell.org/2016/12/19/discretionary-grant-making-and-implications-for-donor-agency/ in late 2016, and announced some major discretionary regrants in 2017. Starting with the 2017 giving season, GiveWell's recommendation to donors has been to give it the money for discretionary regranting. Per https://www.givewell.org/sources/blog-post/q1-q2-2020-discretionary-funding-allocation discretionary regranting was renamed to "Maximum Impact Fund" in the first half of 2020.

Brief notes on broad donor philosophy and major focus areas: The fund makes grants to GiveWell top charities, that are within the broad domain of global health and development. Top areas in recent years have included malaria, deworming, vitamin A supplementation, cash transfers, and seasonal intracountry migration.

Notes on grant decision logistics: For each discretionary regrant, which may be done about once a quarter, GiveWell looks at the most pressing of the needs of its top charities, and regrants funds based on those. Grant decisions have to be approved by the board. The grants using funds obtained by the end of a quarter are usually made within the next quarter.

Notes on grant publication logistics: Shortly after making the grant for a quarter, GiveWell publishes a blog post announcing and explaining the grant(s), and also updates https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund to include the grant and link to the blog post. In addition to public announcement, individual donors are also notified where "their" money ended up getting allocated.

Notes on grant financing: Money for the grants mostly comes from funds that are either donated directly to the Maximum Impact Fund (by earmarking the donation to GiveWell as being for top charities) or, in some cases, from unrestricted donations to GiveWell that are in excess of what GiveWell needs for operations. In some cases, grants made via donors explicitly for specific charities but done through the fund may also be included. As a general rule, all available money in the Maximum Impact Fund at the end of a quarter is granted out by the end of the next quarter, so no reserve or buffer is built up in the Maximum Impact Fund. In the case of regrant to the Against Malaria Foundation, the original donors show up in the Against Malaria Foundation donor list.

Announcing our 2019 top charities 2019-11-26 Catherine Hollander GiveWell GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund Good Ventures/GiveWell top and standout charities Malaria Consortium Against Malaria Foundation Helen Keller International Deworm the World Initiative Sightsavers END Fund GiveDirectly Schistosomiasis Control Initiative Evaluator consolidated recommendation list Global health and development GiveWell annual top charrities list. As in previous years, GiveWell recomemnds that donors donate to GiveWell to regrant to top charities at its discretion, but also provides its current ranked list of top charities to help donors make an informed decision. Its ranked list (from best to worst) is: Malaria Consortium (seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) program), Against Malaria Foundation, Helen Keller International (vitamin A suppplementation), charities that treat parasitic worm infections (Evidence Action's Deworm the World Initiative, Sightsavers, END Fund), and GiveDirectly. From the perspective of cause areas, the rank is: malaria > vitamin A supplementation > deworming > cash transfers. This is consistent with, and highly influenced by, the cost-effectiveness estimates that GiveWell uses. The post highlights Malaria Consortium as the charity to select for donors who want to give directly to a charity. The post links to a number of more in-depth write-ups explaining the charity ranking, as well as to https://www.givewell.org/charities/top-charities/2019/open-philanthropy-recommendation which describes the recommendation to Open Philanthropy Project (and indirectly, to Good Ventures) on how to allocate funding to the top charities in 2019

1,000,000.00112021-06Global health/nutrition/vitamin A supplementationhttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q1-2021#How_did_we_arrive_at_our_allocation explains the seven principles followed in deciding the allocation: "Principle 1: Put significant weight on our cost-effectiveness estimates. Principle 2: Consider additional information that we have not explicitly modeled about an organization. Principle 3: Consider additional information that we have not explicitly modeled about a funding gap. Principle 4: Assess charities' funding gaps at the margin, i.e., how they would spend additional funding, where possible. Principle 5: Default to not imposing restrictions on charities' spending. Principle 6: Default to funding on a three-year horizon, modifying to preserve our options for the future where doing so is low-cost. Principle 7: Ensure charities are incentivized to engage with our process." There are more details in the document.

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant "to fund long-lasting insecticide-treated net (LLIN) distributions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2023, [...] We estimate that AMF's room for more funding for DRC in 2023 is about $2.9 million [...] Therefore, we believe the actual effect of this grant will be to free up $1 million of AMF's future revenue to use for other LLIN campaigns."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/allocation-q1-2021#Against_Malaria_Foundation estimates the grant as 15x cash, along with a range of estimates depending on how thte funds end up funging (15x for Nigeria, 9x for Togo, 17x for Uganda).

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount only partially funds the programs it funds ($1 million out of $2.9 million); it covers $1 million out of $13.5 million available for granting. The exact reasons for allocating this particular amount to this grantee are not described.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 7.41%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q1 2021 (January to March) and would therefore be expected to be in Q2 2021, which it is.

Other notes: Affected countries: Chad; announced: 2021-08-31.
25,900,000.0012021-03Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: This grant was decided along with several other grant decisions and funding recommendations made in January and Febuary 2021 that https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/grants-jan-feb-2021 documents; the Malaria Consortium also received a large sum of money as part of the process but via Open Philanthropy.

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant "to support its work in Nigeria in 2021-22 ($21.4 million) and in DRC in 2022-23 ($5.9 million)."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fund/grants-jan-feb-2021#Case_for_these_grants gives estimates of AMF's work in Nigeria as 15x cash and Congo as 13x cash. It identifies the Nigeria opportunity as time-sensitive, and the Congo opportunity as potentially time-sensitive. It also reports having completed a review of monitoring results of AMF's Congo distribution, and being satisfied with the results.

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The entire amount of funds donated to the GiveWell Maximum Impact Fund for Q4 2020 was granted to AMF. The amount in Q4 is generally higher than in other quarters due to greater amounts of giving during Giving Season.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q4 2020 (October to December) and would therefore be expected to be in Q1 2021, which it is. The decision process for this quarter is combined with the grant recommendations to Open Philanthropy to recommend to Good Ventures.

Other notes: Some other grants to AMF are also recommended alongside this: a total of about $1.5 million from Effective Altruism Funds ($0.7 million), Effective Altruism Australia ($0.3 million), Effektiv Spenden ($0.4 million), and RC Forward ($0.1 million), each of which offer their own version of the Maximum Impact Fund. In addition, GiveWell suggested to a separate donor to donate $20 million to AMF. Affected countries: Nigeria|Democratic Republic of the Congo; announced: 2021-06-24.
11,700,000.0022020-09Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ says: "We typically allocate flexible donations to our top charities every quarter. However, we delayed allocating the donations we received to “Grants to recommended charities at GiveWell’s discretion” in the first quarter of 2020. We wanted to better understand the impact of the growing COVID-19 pandemic on charities’ budgets and plans before making a decision about where funding would have the greatest impact. [...] We considered making grants to Malaria Consortium’s seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) program and Helen Keller International (HKI)’s vitamin A supplementation program, as we estimated that they were similarly cost-effective to AMF when we began our decisionmaking process."

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ says: "AMF supports the distribution of insecticide-treated nets in areas with high rates of malaria. The nets stop mosquitoes from biting and spreading the disease. We estimate our donors’ support for AMF will collectively save over 3,000 lives, mostly of young children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Guinea. Without this grant, we think net distributions in DRC and Guinea would have been delayed."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ says: "AMF was a top contender for receiving this grant because of its high estimated impact per dollar. It is continuing its work during the pandemic, with some delays and modifications. [...] As of June 2020, AMF had committed nearly all of this [past $70 million] funding and held only around $4 million in uncommitted funds. [...] There is a strong case the distributions would be delayed without this grant, as funding needs to be secured well before nets are provided. [...] We investigated AMF’s current monitoring practices in detail this year and believe AMF meets our high standards. [...] our investigation into [Malaria Consortium SMC and Helen Keller International Vitamin A supplementation] current plans and budgets did not turn up urgent funding needs."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The entirety of funds available in the Maximum Impact Fund from Q1 and Q2 2020 was granted to Against Malaria Foundation, as it was the highest-priority funding need identified.
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This grant round included allocation of funds for two quarters (Q1 and Q2 2020) in Q3 2020. https://blog.givewell.org/2020/10/13/maximum-impact-fund-update-we-estimate-givewell-donors-15-3-million-to-the-against-malaria-foundation-will-save-over-3000-lives/ explains the allocation delay: "We typically allocate flexible donations to our top charities every quarter. However, we delayed allocating the donations we received to “Grants to recommended charities at GiveWell’s discretion” in the first quarter of 2020. We wanted to better understand the impact of the growing COVID-19 pandemic on charities’ budgets and plans before making a decision about where funding would have the greatest impact."

Other notes: An additional $3.6 million in unrestricted funding available to GiveWell is also allocated to Against Malaria Foundation, bringing its total funding in this round to $15.3 million. In addition, GiveWell announces that it had granted $8 million in flexible funding to the Malaria Consortium's SMC program in June. Affected countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo|Guinea; announced: 2020-10-13.
2,300,000.0062019-08Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: GiveWell looked at the funding gap and value of marginal funds for each of its top charities. Two charities that competed closely for the discretionary regrant were Malaria Consortium and Against Malaria Foundation. The blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/ goes over the comparison with Malaria Consortium, and has a section "Process for deciding where to allocate fund" describing the process and linking to a previous post https://blog.givewell.org/2018/11/26/our-recommendation-to-good-ventures/#Principles for more information

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: AMF will use additional funding to support a distribution of nets scheduled for 2020 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 2020 or 2021. https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/#AdditionalFunding has more details.

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The section https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/#OtherPossibilities says: "Weighing these factors, we ultimately chose AMF over Malaria Consortium based on its somewhat higher modeled cost-effectiveness and more time-sensitive funding need." This is the same decision made for allocating the previous quarter's discretionary funds, as described at https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount is the amount donated by donors to GiveWell for discretionary regranting to top charities in Q2 2019; GiveWell allocates the money separately for each quarter
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q2 2019 (April to June) and would therefore be expected to be in Q3 2019, which it is.

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: The section https://blog.givewell.org/2019/08/21/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q2-2019/#OtherPossibilities says: "We now model additional funding to AMF as roughly 33 percent more cost-effective than additional funding to Malaria Consortium’s SMC program, as a result of adjusting the chance of additional funding supporting nets in DRC from 87 percent to 75 percent. We have not received any new information to update us on the time sensitivity of Malaria Consortium’s funding needs, and we continue to view Malaria Consortium as stronger than AMF on unmodeled qualitative factors."

Other notes: Affected countries: Democratic Republic of the Congo; announced: 2019-08-21.
4,700,000.0032019-06Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Donation process: GiveWell looked at the funding gap and value of marginal funds for each of its top charities. Two charities that competed closely for the discretionary regrant were Malaria Consortium and Against Malaria Foundation. The blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/ has a section "Our process" describing how GiveWell decided to support AMF instead of Malaria Consortium.

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: AMF expects to allocate all funding that it receives in the near future toward distributing insecticide-treated nets in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in 2020. More is explained in https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/ in the "What AMF will do with additional funding" section.

Donor reason for selecting the donee: In the section "Updates since March 2019" of the blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2019/06/12/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2019/ GiveWell explains why it selected AMF instead of Malaria Consortium for this discretionary regrant, even though the previous quarter, it had selected MC. The two main reasons listed are: (1) An error correction in the cost-effectiveness estimate for AMF, described at https://www.givewell.org/how-we-work/our-criteria/cost-effectiveness/cost-effectiveness-models/changelog-2019#Version_3_Published_March_21_2019 has increased GiveWell's cost-effectiveness estimate for AMF, (2) After the previous quarter's discretionary regrant to MC in March 2019 described at https://blog.givewell.org/2019/03/29/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q4-2018/ GiveWell thinks MC has less room for more funding.

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The amount is the amount donated by donors to GiveWell for discretionary regranting to top charities in Q1 2019; GiveWell allocates the money separately for each quarter
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 100.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): This discretionary regrant is done for each quarter, usually within 2 to 3 months of the end of the quarter. This particular grant is for Q1 2019 (January to March) and would therefore be expected to be in Q2 2019, which it is.

Grant uses money donated between April and June 2018 (i.e., Q2 2018) of $1.2 million, as well as $2.9 million of unrestricted funds ($1.8 million held in reserve, and $1.1 million from a single donor donating $2.1 million). 70% of this total of $4.1 million is allocated to AMF in line with the general recommendation to donors to give 70% to AMF and 30% to SCI. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 70.00%.

See https://blog.givewell.org/2018/06/04/allocation-of-discretionary-funds-from-q1-2018/ for more details.

2,500,000.0052017-08Global health/malariahttps://www.givewell.org/maximum-impact-fundGiveWell Grant uses money donated between January and February 2017. Blog post https://blog.givewell.org/2017/04/03/allocation-of-discretionary-funds/ announces $4.4 million grant to AMF from the funds GiveWell has for discretionary regranting (see https://blog.givewell.org/2016/12/19/discretionary-grant-making-and-implications-for-donor-agency/ for more background on how this differs from GiveWell top charities). This is because AMF has the largest remaining Execution Level 1 gap based on the funding gaps identified in November 2016, and reports of funds raised as of February 2017. An additional $0.5 million is being granted to Deworm the World Initiative, and GiveWell recommends that donors giving now should donate all their money to the Against Malaria Foundation. Although a total grant of $4.4 million is announced, only $2.1 million is allocated at the time. The remaining $2.5 million (a bit more than the original estimate would suggest) for donations between January and February 2017 is paid out in August 2017. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 51.00%.
