Inspiration

Clipper Ship Foundation's purposes is truly meaningful, however, we found out that the Foundation’s website lacks clarity regarding previous projects. Especially, it lacks the metrics that can be used to convey the large impact it has already made and therefore cannot efficiently attract nonprofits to apply for grants. We hope to re-organize its data and visualize the impacts so we can increase the amount of grant applicants in the next CSF grant application cycle.

What it does

Through this project, we are aiming to help CSF better visualize their impact, and therefore attract more protective NPOs to apply for CSF grants.

How we built it

We used Google form and Python Packages to create both a database to collect impact results from grantees and an interactive impact visualization model.

Challenges we ran into

We have limited experience with creating metrics for CFS's three target help areas, so we learned a lot on how to measure relevant impacts. We also learned a lot in creating data visualization charts using Python.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of the complete distribute-collect-visualize procedure we made for CSF.

What we learned

What's next for Clipper Ship Foundation Hack

We hope that CSF can continue expand the database and data collection form we have built for them. CSF should be able to include these visualized impacts in its marketing materials on its websites and the pamphlets that can be distributed in various occasions.
