A worldwide event encouraging Alteryx User Groups to give back to their local communities through volunteering activities and sharing their Alteryx data analytic software expertise to enhance their charity’s mission.  An opportunity to demonstrate passion and devotion to the betterment of their local communities where they work and live.

By connecting our Alteryx User Groups with their local communities, Alteryx Users can show their charitable counterparts how to transform their information to make better engagement, fundraising, advocacy, and program decisions based on their data through Alteryx analytic tools.

Hi my name is [Insert Name] and I am from [Insert Alteryx User Group].

Thanks for putting this together-- I am extremely excited about this opportunity for the UG community! Granted the shoe-string budget at most NFPs, software is often a scary thing because of the price tag. As such, it may help to mention the potential for a free license in the outreach email. Can we mention that in our outreach emails?

@LaurenU  - Thanks for creating this page , just wondering if we have an updated list or is there any AFG approved foundations in Sydney? I am aware of the RXP Group & AFG Data Challenge but that seems slightly different .

@ram_neel , thanks for the question. At the point, we don't have a solid updated list, however the AFG team is working on some exciting updates coming very soon. I'll make sure to connect with you and the other Sydney leaders once that has been completed.

@LaurenU  - That sounds great! thanks once again 🙂
