Haseeb Qureshi donations made to 80,000 Hours

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.

25,300.0012016Effective altruism/movement growthhttp://haseebq.com/2016-donations-and-some-thoughts/-- Donation process: The announcement post says: "In 2016, my donations totaled $50,600. My finances this year were little more complicated, but that was my best estimate of 33% of my pre-tax income. (That income does not include RSUs; whenever I can liquidate them, I will also donate 33% of their value.) Below are the organizations I donated to and why."

Intended use of funds (category): Organizational general support

Intended use of funds: The announcement post says: "80K is an organization that advises young people on how to do the most good with their careers. They analyze different career paths, balancing career capital with altruistic aims."

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The announcement post says: "80K actually strongly affected my own trajectory when I was considering career pursuits. Reading through their career guide on tech entrepreneurship influenced my original decision to enter into the tech industry. 80K has had had impressive growth and has done a lot of good for influencing more students on the path to altruistic lives. There’s a big talent gap in effective altruism right now, and 80K seems like the best investment for filling that gap. I’m excited to see what they can do in 2017."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): The total amount the donor is giving away is $50,600, which is 33% of pre-tax income. The allocation of 50% to 80,000 Hours is likely determined by the needs of other recipients; it is also consistent with the percentage allocated the previous year for EA Outreach
Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 50.00%

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): End-of-year round of donations of 33% of income in the year; this is part of the donor's earning-to-give strategy Announced: 2017-01-29.
