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.

Bollard is also ok with the marginal extra funds being reallocated to its top charities: The Humane League, Animal Equality, and the Good Food Institute. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 41.49%.
Effective Altruism FundsRethink Priorities85,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/Cause prioritizationhttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Grant to support trial project http://rethinkpriorities.org/ to generate actionable new insights across EA causes; budget at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TYaIpc-E112CMOcFHzq9UQAdWKnsDK8QeZTS85sk1RU/edit Bollard considers the project worthwhile but his main reason is his high opinion of the people involved http://rethinkpriorities.org/team/staff/ (mainly Peter Hurford and Marcus A. Davis). Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 7.05%.
Effective Altruism FundsAnimal Welfare Action Lab75,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farming/meat alternatives/surveyshttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Grant to support replication on a larger, more reliable platform two recent M-Turk surveys by Eva Vivalt and Bobbie MacDonald: https://osf.io/4dczh/ (impact of clean meat on ethical beliefs) and https://osf.io/ndtr2/ (how to overcome naturalistic resistance to clean meat). Bollard is excited because he thinks (a) we need more data on potential acceptance and impacts of clean meat, (b) the researchers have a track record of good research that follows best practices (e.g., pre-registration, open data), and (c) replication on different platforms is useful for assessing the robustness of findings. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 6.22%.
Effective Altruism FundsAnimal Liberation Translation Fund50,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Grant to support translation of Animal Liberation by Peter Singer into other languages. Singer has offered to waive royalties for any publishers interested in translating, and is in talks with publishers interested in translating the work into Hindi, Ukrainian, Romanian, Georgian, and Swahili (Animal Liberation has already been translated into more common languages like Mandarin and Spanish). This fund will cover costs of translating the work whenever Peter approves its translation — the first $2K will pay to translate the work into Icelandic. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 4.15%.
Effective Altruism FundsCellular Agriculture Society50,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farming/meat alternativeshttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Grant to support building the field of academic research on clean meat. Bollard is impressed with the work of others like The Good Food Institute and New Harvest, but thinks there is scope for a variety of approaches. Despite some concerns, he is impressed with the team assembled by the Cellular Agriculture Society and thinks they deserve funding. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 4.15%.

Effective Altruism FundsEssere Animali75,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farming/chicken and pighttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Bollard is impressed with the publicity the grantee (an Italian membership group with fees of ~€270/year) has got for its investigations into the abuse of pigs for parma ham and octopus fishing. He is also impressed with the work of Animal Equality in Italy, but thinks multiple groups would be good given the scale of factory farming (~260 million land farm animals, and ~150 million farmed fish). These funds would allow Essere Animali to hire corporate campaigners on fish farming and gestation crates for a year, as well as supporting campaign costs. Essere Animali proposed three more roles it wanted funded, but Bollard did not want to overcommit; he thinks the Open Philanthropy Project, where he is the Program Officer for Farm Animal Welfare, may be interested in funding the organization if it does well. Affected countries: Italy; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 6.22%.
Effective Altruism FundsSociedade Vegetariana Brasileira60,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Bollard was recommended this organization, which was claimed to have played a role in Meatless Monday pledges that are claimed to have led to 47 million more vegetarian meanls served in 2017. The funding will cover some combination of expanding the institutional Meatless Monday campaigns and hiring a fundraiser; budget at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18H8SXLkfu7Loh2nk-i4gTXW0LyvySPdBKBajhVSmc9k/edit.

She says she has worked with 30+ restaurants to replace some non-vegan items with vegan items on their menus. Although unable to directly verify, Bollard has heard positive things about Eve. He sees value in suppporting all the promising activists he can find. The funds would pay for outreach expenses and Eve’s time (she currently self-funds from her full-time job). Affected countries: China; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 4.15%.
Effective Altruism FundsBangladesh Animal Welfare Society50,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Given the population of Bangladesh and the rising urban middle class, there is a huge absolute amount of, and rapid growth in, land farm animals (13th highest in world) and farmed fish (5th highest in the world). The animal welfare movement is quite nascent. Bollard is interested in funding it, in particular the Bangladesh Animal Welfare Society, which is shifting focus from street dog welfare to farmed animal welfare nad veg advocacy. Affected countries: Bangladesh; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 4.15%.
Effective Altruism FundsVege Project25,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Haruko Kawano leads this effort to build a grassroots vegan advocacy movement in a country that has the world’s third-highest level of egg consumption and ninth-highest level of fish consumption per capita (though low meat consumption rates). Her group has created a VegeMap for Kyoto and is preparing one for Tokyo, has organized community events to showcase vegan food, and is trying to work with institutions and restaurants to increase vegan options. The funds would allow Haruko to hire her first paid employee to help her. Affected countries: Japan; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 2.07%.
Effective Altruism FundsObraz25,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E This grassroots Czech group appears to have achieved significant traction in the last two years: successfully lobbying for a national ban on fur farming, securing national news coverage(link in Czech) for its investigations into battery cage operations, and securing cage-free pledges from major retailers. Its corporate campaigns and investigations are already funded, but it’s seeking funding to convert a volunteer organizer into a full-time organizer. The Czech Republic is not a high priority due to its size (11M people and 31M land farm animals alive at any time). Affected countries: Czech Republic; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 2.07%.
Effective Altruism FundsHong Kong Veg Society20,000.002018-07-31Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/4Bianu30diUQeWGU2Oiq8E Hong Kong is a relatively small region to target (7.3M people) with few farm animals (1.7M land animals). But it has the world’s highest rate of meat and seafood consumption and, as part of China, offers an opening into the most important country in the world for the future of farm animal welfare. The grant will help a group recommended by several people familiar with the Hong Kong scene to extend its grassroots activism. Affected countries: Hong Kong; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 1.66%.

Charity Science hopes the new groups will be able to secure ongoing funding to continue operations beyond the incubation period. Announced: 2018-07-26.

This grant would support its new project in Sri Lanka, where ~70% of people are Theravada Buddhists and the group seems to have impressive connections. Bollard hopes that if this project succeeds, it could be replicated in Thailand or Myanmar, where ~90% of the population is Theravada Buddhist.

Grantee, though traditionally focused on non-farm animal work, recently participated in Open Wing Alliance training and is eager to launch corporate campaigns in Peru. It is constrained by a small budget (~$25K/year) and the grant is as large as Bollard thinks can usefully be absorbed. Affected countries: Peru; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 2.67%.

This will support the formation of a new group with the goal “to create and sustain salience and urgency about animal suffering and its causes, especially factory farming,” through generating more earned media. Bollard believes in the promise, similar to the success of The Marshall Project and Inside Climate News. The group is founded by Mikko Jarvenpaa, who has previously worked with the media industry as CEO of two startups (Infogram, Vuact) and has skin in the game — he’s funding most of the initial work himself. This grant will enable Mikko to rapidly scale up this group and sustain it for nine months — enough to validate the concept. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 11.30%.

Grantee has recently produced some video series, such as https://theintercept.com/2018/03/02/consumers-are-revolting-against-animal-cruelty-so-the-poultry-industry-is-lobbying-for-laws-to-force-stores-to-sell-their-eggs/ and https://theintercept.com/2017/10/05/factory-farms-fbi-missing-piglets-animal-rights-glenn-greenwald/ Co-founder Glenn Greenwald seems committed. The funding is to produce three longer, deeply reported video stories on factory farming. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 6.67%.
Effective Altruism FundsAnimal Welfare Media25,000.002018-04-30Animal welfare/factory farminghttps://app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/animal-welfare/payouts/2ENqwtVsfWAw22eogwS4cG Grantee produces ideos to promote awareness of factory farming. Bollard is impressed by Animal Welfare Media’s low cost ($12K/video) and reach (its prior farm video videos seem to have generated 500K-3M views each across platforms based on my count). Given $12K would cover printing and distributing ~40K leaflets in the most efficient programs, the viral videos could be equally cost-effective even if they were >10X less effective per view (even assuming everyone who gets a leaflet is a “view”). This grant will enable Animal Welfare Media to produce two videos focused on factory farming, likely one for Faunalytics and one for a more advocacy-focused group. I view this as a test for potential greater funding of this in future. Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 3.33%.

Bollard is impressed with grantee for: (1) generating relevant empirical data, like its survey on US opinion on factory farming and its compilation of global factory farming stats, (2) producing relevant case studies for EA animal advocates, e.g. on the British anti-slavery movement and the adoption of nuclear power, and (3) publishing thought pieces to advance ideas within EA circles, like Jacy’s recent post on prioritizing moral circle expansion over AI alignment. This sum is intended to be enough for the Sentience Institute to support one researcher for a year, though it has total discretion in how to use these funds.

Open Phil already accounts for 50% of their budget, so will not fund more; moreover, its lack of an ACE recommendation and its welfarist focus mean it is unlikely to raise a lot of other money, hence the donation. Affected countries: United States; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 20.00%.

These countries are relatively neglected compared to Mexico and Brazil, but still have a huge number of farm animals. The new group is led by Carolina Macedo Galvani, whose work at the Fórum Nacional impressed Bollard, and in its first few months it helped secure a pledge from a Chilean restaurant company with 320 locations to eliminate cages and crates from its supply chain. Since it is outside the United States and relatively new, it would have trouble raising a lot of funds initially, so Bollard thinks this grant would be valuable to it. Affected countries: Chile|Argentina|Colombia; Percentage of total donor spend in the corresponding batch of donations: 13.33%.
