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 began in June 2016, and currently has 1124 members and several corporate sponsors. We're a citizens service organization committed to solving critical humanitarian problems like homelessness, hunger, school violence, environmental improvement, infrastructure, health, community inclusion, educational and economic equality, and transportation.
We seek those 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-profits 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.
