Empowering Communities Through Data
Data For Good is a collective of do gooders, who want to use their powers for good, and not evil, to help make our communities better through data.
We help other not for profit, and non-governmental, organizations harness the power of their data to make more informed and better decisions in their quest to make their communities flourish.
With a plethora of data scientists, data analysts and developers in Canada’s largest city and and abundance of tech enthusiasts, our collective of experienced volunteers come with not only a lot of grit, but expertise across industries. From tech to consulting to banking and even academia, our volunteers have a passion to go beyond their 9 to 5 and use their skills for good.
We also partner with some of the largest companies in Canada who sponsor their space, food and time to help our cause. Just in 2019, we’ve partnered with Paytm, Intelliware, CAPCO, Terminal and East-End United Church and worked with Youth Without Shelter, Stories and Storefronts, Kids Help Phone, East-End United, TRIEC and United Way. Looking into 2020, we are expanding not only our team but our scope by hosting DataNights and day-long Datathons to help NFPs of all sizes, with a diversity of missions and range of datasets.
If you have the passion as a sponsor, NFP or volunteer we would love to hear more from you.

Want to be part of the fun? You don’t need to be a data scientist or a PhD, there’s lots of ways that you can get involved with Data for Good.
In Toronto, we love to host big events but we also find it hard to fit all the enthusiasm in one room. If you have space to share with more than 100 passionate do gooders, we would be ecstatic to partner with you as our sponsor.
