Life's most persistent and urgent question is
'What are you doing for others?" - Martin Luther King
We're seeking Those Who Make A DifferencE
Seattle Data For Good (SDFG) began in June 2016, and currently has 1,130 members and several corporate sponsors. We're a citizens service non-profit organization focused on utilizing the latest data applications to solve urgent social problems. SDFG helps many Pacific Northwest non-profit and humanitarian organizations by providing volunteer technology consultants, data engineers, project managers, and database administrators to help them better achieve their needs and goals. By increasing our client’s visibility through digital reporting, data gathering and info-graphic creation methods, SDFG also continually gains insight into the more urgent health, education, transportation, environmental, and governmental needs of our local communities.
We seek volunteers who believe in the power of data science to serve humanity. We would like them to use their data science, technology, marketing, design, and community leadership skills to improve the social good. We are a social-capital-driven organization focused on driving conversations about how data science projects can solve our community's most urgent problems. We are working with many non-profit and humanitarian organizations to help them win their data science efforts. In addition, we have formed a community data science Smart Co-Op that will offer free courses to our members and to those in the community. We believe those who are active with Seattle Data For Good will experience a real sense of doing the right thing.
Seattle Data For Good is a Washington State recognized 501 C3 non-profit. This status allows us to seek support funding, equipment, software and hardware, and office space for our projects, as well as obtain different data tools useful in meeting the needs of current and future projects.
