Data You Can Use is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.  All contributions are tax deductible. Your contribution to Data You Can Use will help us continue producing quality information for local communities.  Online donations are sent through Stripe, allowing us to securely process your contribution.

How your contribution can help:

  • $50 helps us cover printing costs of reports that we share with our partners to distribute among their stakeholders, some of whom have low internet access.
  • $100 helps us provide stipends to community members who share expertise at our events, including our annual Data Day.  We believe resident input has value and should be recognized.
  • $500 helps us keep our events free to the public.
  • $3,000 helps us host university students looking for experience in addressing community data questions.  Unpaid internships can be a barrier to students of low economic means and students of color.


Make the most of your gift.
