GiveWell money moved

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.

Update on No Lean Season’s top charity status2018-11-19Catherine Hollander GiveWellGood Ventures/GiveWell top and standout charities No Lean Season Evaluator update on doneeGiveWell announces the removal of No Lean Season from its list of top charities, in advance of the annual top charity list refresh. The primary reason is that the results of the 2017 RCT suggest that the program did not successfully induce migration. No Lean Season has over two years of funding remaining, which would allow them to use the information to tweak the program further, allowing for re-evaluation by GiveWell in 2019. Evidence Action has a related blog post at https://www.evidenceaction.org/blog-full/why-test-at-scale-no-lean-season
Update on Investigating Neglected Goals in Biological Research2017-11-30Nick Beckstead Open Philanthropy ProjectOpen Philanthropy Project Good Ventures/not recommended by GiveWell or Open Philanthropy Project Target Malaria Broad donor strategyThe blog post describes the way the Open Philanthropy Project is identifying neglected goals in biological research. Previously the hope was to investigate sub-areas deeply and produce write-ups. Now, the approach is more "opportunistic": rather than do public write-ups, staff look out for good opportunities for shovel-ready or highly promising grants in the specific topics identified as having strong potential

Luke DingOne for the World51,250.002018-07Effective altruism/fundraisinghttps://www.1fortheworld.org/blog/evanoppgrant The grant was also announced by GiveWell, the main influencer of the grant, on the page https://www.givewell.org/about/impact/one-for-the-world/july-2018-grant which also said it is a July 2018 grant. It is accompanied by a grant from the Open Philanthropy Project of $153,750 (so the two grants are in a 3:1 ratio) also influenced by GiveWell. As of the time of entering this, the grant from the Open Philanthropy Project is not listed in the Open Philanthropy Project grants database. Also, the GiveWell page on the grant does not explicitly name either donor. The two grants together are expected to cover two years of costs, including budget for a COO (which they succeeded in doing: Evan McVail joined as COO for a year) and a CEO in 2019.

Out of a total donation amount of $142,000 for 2017, the budget for GiveWell top charities is 50%; of this, 21% goes to the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (this is a little less than the recommended 30%). We get 21% of 50% of $142,000, which is $15,000. The donation is via GiveWell. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 10.50%.
Jeff Kaufman and Julia WiseAgainst Malaria Foundation50,000.002017-12-21Global health/malariahttps://www.jefftk.com/donations See https://www.jefftk.com/p/2017-donations for more background on the donation decision. Out of a total donation amount of $142,000 for 2017, the budget for GiveWell top charities is 50%; of this, 79% goes to the Against Malaria Foundation (this is a little higher than the 70% recommended by GiveWell); this works out to $56,000. Out of this, $6000 was already donated in January. The couple chose to donate directly to the top charities rather than to GiveWell for regranting, in order for Jeff to be able to participate in donation matching at work. The selection of PayPal Giving Fund was because it allowed the couple to use a 2% cash-back credit card and also give the charity an extra 1% match from PayPal (so $500). Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 35.20%.

Michael LevineGiveDirectly--2017-12-18Cash transfershttps://www.openphilanthropy.org/blog/staff-members-personal-donations-giving-season-2017#Mike Donation of 30% to GiveDirectly, which deviates from the GiveWell recommendation for people who want to directly donate to GiveWell top charities (70% to Against Malaria Foundation, 30% to Schistosomiasis Control Initiative) because, as donor states: "I see value in having direct cash transfers serve as a benchmark for other interventions, and in part because I want to signal my excitement about GiveDirectly’s new universal basic income project, even if my contribution will not meaningfully advance that specific work.". Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 30.00%.
