Our mission is to maximize the availability and impact of data for public good. 

We help develop infrastructure that enables the social sector to better share, use, and learn from data. Our approach blends consulting on data strategy and governance frameworks, stakeholder convening, and policy development. We work with nonprofits and civil society groups, government, funders, and global data initiatives.

Our vision is a society where governments, nonprofits, and civil society are using data to build a more equitable world.

We are committed to helping build a data-informed social sector. We envision a future where data plays a key role in enabling evidence-based decision making, increasing the quality of social service delivery, and supporting efforts to advocate for equitable systems change.

From Infrastructure to Impact

In order for data to be leveraged for public good, relevant data first needs to be accessible and useable by nonprofits, government, and civil society. We have developed a framework for understanding the environment required to increase the supply and use of socially impactful data.

A core focus of our work revolves around developing strategies, policies, and legislation which will encourage the development of robust data infrastructure in the social sector. Our work is grounded in the belief that well-designed data infrastructure—practices, data standards, and/or digital technology—will lead to greater availability and use of data for the social sector.
