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.

|761,612.00||1||Communities||https://knightfoundation.org/grants/8117||--||Grant period: 01/01/2018 - 12/31/2020; goal: To implement and further develop a trustworthy and accessible recurring public opinion survey so that Detroit’s civic and community leaders can effectively prioritize issues and design better programs, policies and financial investments that enjoy broader resident support.Launched in 2016, the Detroit Metro Area Communities Study is led by researchers at the University of Michigan. The survey model leverages state-of-the-art scientific methods and is unique in its scale, providing deep insights across the entire city to ensure that diverse voices are incorporated into decision-making. Examples of topics covered in the survey include: quality of life, priorities for change in the metro area, the impact of recent investments on different populations, sense of community and social cohesion, transportation and mobility, public safety, policing, the role of government and trust in government institutions, views on inequality and race relations, and healthcare.The Knight Foundation award will allow the university to conduct nine additional surveys over the next three years, to expand its participant panel and to disseminate policy-relevant findings more broadly. The information will be used by city officials, nonprofits, business leaders and philanthropies to inform program development, guide investments in physical spaces and craft public policies that better reflect the interests of Detroit […].|
