DataKind San Francisco-Bay Area (DataKind SF) launched in August 2014 with the vision of creating examples of successful efforts that bring tech and public good sectors together. In a region well known for attracting top tech talent from around the globe and for its incredible community of data scientists and data enthusiasts, DataKind SF hopes to tap into this community’s desire to have a greater impact both locally and globally. Although the universities, community and culture of the Bay Area have always fostered nonprofits striving for positive change, costs are rising rapidly. Through DataKind, they hope to execute data projects that are often out of reach for organizations that could most greatly benefit from them. With a growing group of core volunteers, DataKind SF is inspired by the opportunity to transform how nonprofits operate by using data more effectively.
