Uncommitted, unreserved funds in the bank$0Sightsavers notes that all previously received funds have been committed to programs in 2018-2019. https://files.givewell.org/files/DWDA%202009/Sightsavers/Sightsavers_Wishlist_3_room_for_more_funding_analysis.xlsx, "Available and expected funding" sheet, cell B15 and associated footnote. Note that this does not account for unrestricted funding that Sightsavers could potentially allocate to its deworming programs, as we believe it is unlikely that Sightsavers will allocate unrestricted funding to these programs.

Projected revenueValue from same period in previous yearAre there any reasons why last year's revenue is not a reasonable projection for next year (ignoring variation in GiveWell-influenced funding)?Projection (before GiveWell's 2018 recommendation)Notes
22
Projected revenue from donors who are not influenced by GiveWell's research in most recent fiscal year (or another annual period consistent with the above)--$0Scope of analysis is work funded by GiveWell-directed funds
23
Funding held by GiveWell as of the end of most recent fiscal year (or another annual period consistent with the above)--$11,441From GiveWell's internal donation records.
24
Annual projected revenue from donors who give based on GiveWell's top charity list, but do not follow our recommendation for marginal funding--$168,655GiveWell maintains both a list of all top charities that meet our criteria and a recommendation for which charity or charities to give to to maximize the impact of additional donations, given cost-effectiveness of remaining funding gaps.

Here we have used the amount that Sightsavers received due to GiveWell in the the year up to June 30, 2018. During that period, Sightsavers was on our list of top charities, but was not the option that we pointed to to maximize the impact of marginal donations.

[For programs that are part of a larger org] Funding expected for the program from parent organization's unrestricted funding$0-$0Sightsavers has told us that it does not expect to allocate unrestricted funds to these programs. https://www.givewell.org/charities/sightsavers#Past_uses_of_unrestricted_funding
