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.

(The project is currently non-public, so I won’t give more details here.) I generally think that funding early-stage projects where you have inside information, e.g. by knowing the people involved, is one of the very best ways for small donors to give, so I was excited to come across this project. In this case, I know the founders pretty well and have confidence that they share my values, that they can competently execute the project, and that receiving additional funding quickly was helpful to them, so I saw this as an unusually good opportunity for me as an individual.".|
