Data @ DonorsChoose.org
Thursday, May 16, 6:45pm
Speaker: Stephen Burke, Digital and Growth Marketing Manager
DonorsChoose.org is the leading platform for giving to public schools. Teachers across America use the site to create projects requesting resources their students need, and donors give to the projects that inspire them. Since its founding by a Bronx history teacher in 2000, more than 3.6 million people and partners have given $816 million to support over 500,000 teachers at 80% of US public schools. Unique among crowdfunding platforms, the DonorsChoose.org team vets each project request and ships resources directly to the school. DonorsChoose.org was the first charity to make the top 10 on Fast Company’s list of the Most Innovative Companies in the World.
Come hear Stephen Burke, Digital and Growth Marketing Manager, speak on how data permeates DonorsChoose.org's culture. He'll discuss how they use data and machine learning to make decisions, set goals, personalize marketing messages, and much more to drive the organization's success. It's a talk you won't want to miss!
