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 research focus of this grant is relatively unusual for Open Phil's cage-free campaign spending, but it is similar to a previous grant https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/university-of-bern-higher-welfare-cage-free-systems to the same grantee.

Other notes: Intended funding timeframe in months: 72.

Donor reason for donating that amount (rather than a bigger or smaller amount): This is a total across two grants. The grant page initially gave a smaller total of 1,432,130 (1,228,000 EUR) for just one grant, and was updated around June 2021 to be a total of two grants, with the updated amount. The donation was given as 1,408,000.00 EUR (conversion done via donor calculation).

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): Reasons for timing are not discussed; the grant happens about one year after the expiration of the previous two-year grant.

Donor reason for donating at this time (rather than earlier or later): The grant is made a few months before the timeframe for the previous grant to the Open Wing Alliance was scheduled to end; that might partly explain the timing.
Intended funding timeframe in months: 24
Open PhilanthropyCatalyst350,000.002020-08Animal welfare/factory farming/pig/chickenhttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/catalyst-farm-animal-welfare-in-thailand Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

The amount is almost double the previous 2-year grant https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/animal-charity-evaluators-general-support made in April 2017; the increase might reflect increased budget of the donee or greater confidence in it from Open Phil.

Intended funding timeframe in months: 24

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

Open PhilanthropyCompassion Over Killing250,000.002019-01Animal welfare/factory farming/chicken/fishhttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/compassion-exit-grant-2019 Intended use of funds (category): Direct project expenses

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.
