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.

|--||--||Animal welfare||https://thingofthings.wordpress.com/2019/01/03/donation-post-2018/||--||Donation is to the Animal Welfare Fund (of the four Funds labeled Effective Altruism Funds). The donor, Ozy Brennan, had past experience interacting with Lewis Bollard, chair of the Animal Welfare Fund, at the time they were evaluating Wild-Animal Suffering Research (WASR), when Ozy used to work there. Ozy was impressed by Bollard's thoughtful approach during the grantmaking process, and continues to be impressed by the grants made by the Animal Welfare Fund, which are innovative, geographically diverse, and hard for small donors to find. Ozy identifies the following characteristics for other people who may be interested in donating to the Animal Welfare Fund: (a) People who prioritize animal welfare and do not think we should concentrate on persuading people to be vegan/vegetarian. (b) People who support "weird EA" animal causes.|
