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 December 2019. 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.

Open Philanthropy ProjectWorld Animal Protection781,498.002019-04Animal welfare/factory farming/chickenhttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/world-animal-protection-se-asia-broiler Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant "to support corporate broiler chicken campaigns in Southeast Asia with a focus on Thailand and Indonesia. WAP plans to increase its broiler chicken campaigns in Thailand and perform scoping research to lay the groundwork for future campaigns in Indonesia, as both Thailand and Indonesia have large numbers of farmed birds."

Other notes: Intended funding timeframe in months: 1; affected countries: Thailand|Indonesia; announced: 2019-06-26.
Open Philanthropy ProjectCompassion Over Killing250,000.002019-01Animal welfare/factory farming/chickenhttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/compassion-exit-grant-2019 Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant to support farm animal welfare outreach and investigations related to chickens and fish. The new funding represents an “exit grant” that will provide Compassion Over Killing with approximately one year of operating support to allow them to secure other funding.

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The donor had previously supported the donee in 2016 https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/compassion-over-killing-us-broiler-welfare-campaigns The new grant is an exit grant to give the donee time to find other sources of funding

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): Likely selected as a reasonable amount for a one-year exit grant

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Timing likely determined by the end of the previous grant, and the need to provide more funding for a smooth exit grant
Intended funding timeframe in months: 12

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: There will be no next donation; this is an exit grant

Other notes: Announced: 2019-05-07.
Open Philanthropy ProjectFarm Forward166,000.002019-01Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/farm-forward-exit-grant Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant to continue to seek commitments from universities, hospitals, and companies to source certified higher-welfare animal products. This is an exit grant, so will not be renewed; the purpose of the grant is therefore also to give the grantee enough time to find alternate funding sources

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): The grant is a renewal grant and its timing is determined by the end of the timeframe for the previous grant

Donor thoughts on making further donations to the donee: There will be no next donation; this is an exit grant

Other notes: Affected countries: United States; announced: 2019-05-18.
Open Philanthropy projectRoyal Veterinary College130,850.002019-01Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/royal-vet-college-halal Donation process: Discretionary grant

Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

Intended use of funds: Grant to investigate a more humane method of halal poultry slaughter. Controlled atmosphere slaughter techniques, which are among the most commonly used stunning systems, are not currently approved by halal authorities. Royal Veterinary College intends to use these funds to investigate a new method of stunning that would both be approved by halal authorities and allow chickens to be individually stunned

Donor reason for selecting the donee: The grant page says the grant would "potentially [reduce] suffering for more than 100 million chickens slaughtered in halal facilities in Europe each year."

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): Grant of £100,000 ($130,850 at the time of conversion)

Other notes: Announced: 2019-05-23.
