Helping Businesses Invest in Nonprofits

About Us

We match firms and nonprofits efficiently using data-driven machine learning techniques because we understand that corporations are measured for the effectiveness of their corporate social responsibility (CSR).

We evaluate nonprofits using decision trees, which is a machine learning technique. We not only take into account the financials of the nonprofit, but also the CEO or President’s compensation of each nonprofit; and also the number of volunteers over the number of employees; And also fundraising expenses divided by revenue.

With over 35 members operating in over nine countries worldwide, we have developed a smart way for your company to spend charitable funds and improve the efficiency of those investments. Give smarter, through big data and smart data.
