Giving Back to Schools

DonorsChoose.org had a problem…

As a non-profit, DonorsChoose.org needed to remain lean, but the team also needed quick, easy access to real time analytics that could power data-driven decision making. They were growing, but there wasn't a streamlined way to pull data from a variety of sources.

Their team had more data-related needs than their data scientists could keep up with.

Clear results

With Looker, DonorsChoose.org was able to make their data public & easily accessible. Looker also made it easier to manage complex partnerships and get valuable resources into classrooms.
