9/18/21: 501c3 Approval
by Josh Chamberlain

We did it!

In January, we filed for 501c3 status with the IRS. On August 14, 2021, it was accepted! Police Data Accessibility Project Inc is now a registered nonprofit. Here's our guidestar profile.
The biggest change is that your donations may be tax deductible!

What's next?


We're volunteer-based, but we want to hire a skeleton crew to keep the lights on. We're on Techsoup, so we can access lots of software at free or reduced rates. We're now a more attractive recipient for grants and large donations.
If you believe in our mission and want to contribute, start here. Text a few people you're close with, too!


We're working on removing roadblocks to data activists (scrapers), and giving them a place to put their unprocessed data.
Once there's a place for the raw data, we need to make submission as seamless as possible with a local app. Our roadmap is here if you'd like to read more or contribute code.
