About DATA4Philanthropy

We are a dedicated network seeking to advance the responsible use of data across the philanthropic sector

DATA4Philanthropy not only promotes the responsible use of data and technology in new ways, but also encourages the integration of lived experiences throughout the process. Join our growing community of responsible data leaders to receive updates from the field and emerging data-driven best practices.

This initiative was developed by the Data Program of The GovLab at New York University, an action-based research center that has conducted research in data-driven methods and tools for over a decade, with the support of the Paul Ramsay Foundation.

Key functions:

  • Building the evidence base on the use of data-driven methods in philanthropy
  • Connecting responsible data leaders across the philanthropic sector
  • Amplifying experiences using data-driven methods and sharing best practices
  • Driving data innovation across the philanthropic sector
