Note: This grant was awarded while the Open Philanthropy Project was a partnership between GiveWell and Good Ventures.

Good Ventures, with input from GiveWell, awarded a GiveWell Incubation Grant of $2,321,617 to IDinsight to support and expand its GiveWell-embedded team for the next twelve months. GiveWell Incubation Grants are recommended by GiveWell staff, and support the development of potential future top charities.

IDinsight supports and conducts rigorous evaluations of development interventions, often involving randomized controlled trials, with an explicit focus on partnering with funders and policy makers to use data to inform key strategy decisions. GiveWell therefore sees working with IDinsight as a promising way of supporting the development of future GiveWell top charities.
