Getting Started Guide >

Want to explore our data? Looking for impact stats for your community? Our dashboard shows our impact numbers by geography, for every project that has ever been funded. With access to our data, you will be able to answer questions such as:

  • How many classroom projects have been funded in my area?
  • How many students were reached this school year in my area?
  • How much money was raised for teachers in my area?
  • What are the most common resources teachers request?

 

As a basic example, let’s say you wanted to look at our impact in all of Chicago in the last school year (2014-15).

 

Our default settings for this dashboard include all donations and limit our impact to projects funded for the current school year (2015-16 currently). If you want to narrow your focus, you can click on the arrow next to “Filters” at the top, which will drop down options to focus on a specific state/county/city/district or school year (you can also select “is any value” to look at all-time). Remember to always use the full names of cities/counties/districts when filtering!

After inputting your desired focus on the appropriate field, simply click “Run” on the top right, and every element on the dashboard will refresh to display the specific regions and timeframes you are interested in. As a bonus, you can also see the details for each project funded (you may also see all projects by adjusting the filters) at the bottom of the dashboard, and you can visit the project pages on our site by clicking on “Link” under “Project Url.”

Hooray! Looks like our donors funded over 3,500 Chicagoan projects in 2014-2015 school year!
