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 grant of $820,000 to New Incentives for general support, as part of GiveWell’s Incubation Grants to support the development of potential future top charities and improve the quality of GiveWell’s recommendations. New Incentives plans to use these funds to support its work on conditional cash transfers to incentivize child immunization.

Good Ventures previously made several grants to New Incentives, including funding for general support in 2014, 2015, and 2016, as well as a November 2016 exit grant that included funding for New Incentives to pivot to its new program incentivizing immunizations. Since then, New Incentives has begun operating a program providing conditional cash transfers for child immunizations in Nigeria. Over the next few months, New Incentives plans to explore potential for scale-up.
