ALTERYX FOR GOOD (NYC)

Hi! Jealous of your companions in other cities doing cool Alteryx For Good projects with their User Group colleagues? No More!  Jump in on this thread to become part of the planning and kickoff process. Seth (NYC), Deanna (Dallas), and of course Lauren (Alteryx/Irvine) have kindly set us in motion on our Aug 2018 meeting thread and everyone is invited to continue the conversation here ---KP

So, our AUG is starting AFG in Aug?  😉

 

I'm glad to see this starting and hope I can help.

Hi Laurence --

 

Yes, we are in the (very) early stages of this process. We hope it will foster a more interactive AUG all while giving back to the community. All ideas are welcome and appreciated and we want everyone to be involved in this new venture.

 

Thanks,

Seth

Thanks @smoskowitz for introducing this at the technical session yesterday! I love the idea and am really interested in getting involved with the initiative!

 

Is there a list of requirements for qualifying non-profits posted somewhere that we can reference for research? And Seth, you mentioned some websites you were using to look up non-profit earnings info - can you share those again?

 

Thanks for getting the ball rolling with this!

Thank you for your email. Below is some information provided to me that you might find useful. You can also read more about Alteryx For Good @ https://www.alteryx.com/why-alteryx/alteryx-for-good/non-profits.

 

 

  1. NPOs are eligible for the free Alteryx Designer license so long as they are a registered NPO (they must have an EIN #) and they must fall under $10M USD in terms of operating income.
  2. The best way to find NPOs that qualify is to use Guidestar – it’s free. You can filter by region/state and see their operating income.
  3. After you’ve found an NPO that qualifies, you can either volunteer physically (this helps with the introduction) or reach out to their team to see if you could volunteer technically/analytically.

 

Thanks,

Seth

I am interested in volunteering for AFG. What is the process for the same? Can someone help me out?

Hi,

 

I have several leads for Alteryx For Good in Brooklyn that I would like to develop with the User Group (of which I am a new member).  The basic use case involves providing analytics and visualizations for NGOs with interesting geo-spatial data sets.  One potential project would support the upcoming NYC BioBlitz in which a very cool phone app called iNaturalist is used to crowd-source data: document observations, identify specimens, and publish the results.  Another would contribute to a New York Mycological Society study of mycorrhizal relationships between fungi and trees.  I think there is also a good opportunity to partner with Savi @Pratt which is very active in the community and would understand and appreciate how Alteryx skills could contribute to projects.  There is particular potential for those interested in building skills in geo-spatial and data science as well as those with hard core mapping and stat knowledge.  Looking forward to discussing at the upcoming Happy Hour. -- Potter
