Check out our pro-bono services...
Data for Good, inspired by DataKind.org, is the Canadian voice for data people with a conscience. We are a community of volunteer data professionals who provide pro-bono data analytics services to registered charities and Not for Profit organizations. Our aim is to unlock insights which may be lurking within your data assets that may be helpful to your organization’s strategic planning and operational efficiency.

What we do…

Our services are tailored to your specific requirement, which may range from an in-depth data analysis to follow up on a hunch you may have relating to a specific business question, to a wide-open data exploration just to ‘see what comes up’.

We guide you through the process…

Every client engagement is assigned a ‘Data Ambassador’, who is your main point of contact and available to guide you through the process every step of the way.

What we deliver…

Engagements typically last between four and eight months, depending on the depth and complexity of the data question being asked and culminates with a written report containing significant findings, suggestions for further analysis and lots of pretty yet informative charts.

How we stay on track…

As the client, you determine to which extent you’d like to be involved. While collaboration ensures the best results, this can take many forms, from infrequent e-mail exchanges, all the way to you being an active content editor. D4G will also arrange for F2F ‘checkpoint’ meetings every few months to explain where the analysis is at, and if any course corrections should be made to ensure we’re delivering what is of the most value to you.
