We currently include details of the fund that made the grant, a project summary, the grantee and the payout amount.
We think it is valuable to show the EA community and our donors what kinds of projects we end up funding to increase accountability and encourage more excellent projects. Prospective grantees often ask me what types of projects we fund, and I hope this will make it easier for them to come up with ideas for projects and know whether their project ideas are in scope.
We previously wrote public payout reports where our fund managers would outline their reasoning for making a grant. I think that the public payout reports were excellent. Still, they were time-consuming for our fund managers, and I would prefer them to spend their limited capacity evaluating grants . We were also much slower than I would have liked with releasing them, and I hope the database will stay much more up-to-date with our grantmaking (with entries generally added soon after we make payouts).
Please note that it is currently still being tested, so some grant information may be incorrect.
One idea is to ask fund managers to highlight a few grants each month and explain why they were excited about them to encourage more excellent projects and give insight into our grantmaking. They would not be comprehensive like our old reports, but I think our public grants database and these highlights reports (when we have time to write them) will get most of the value of the old reports while saving us substantial time.
