Learn how Memphians can unlock the potential of their neighborhoods and local nonprofit organizations in a much more powerful way through online, free access to a wealth of interesting and useful information. WHEREweLIVEmidsouth.org and WHEREtoGIVEmidsouth.org are a pair of new websites that help citizens understand Memphis better and invest in nonprofits that are improving their community.

Attendees will learn about two new, complementary websites, WHEREweLIVEmidsouth.org and WHEREtoGIVEmidsouth.org, that give people information and help them make decisions about how to impact the communities and causes that are important to them. Unlike anything else in our city, these tools will convene our community around data to drive change.

WHEREweLIVE is an online dashboard that allows people to look at Memphis in different ways – from a very regional, macro level, all the way down to the block where they live. The dashboard uses data from a variety of public sources to show objective, current information on many different livability and health factors, such as, How walkable is the area? How many parks and trails are nearby? Are there health clinics in the immediate vicinity?

WHEREtoGIVE is a new directory of nonprofit organizations in the Greater Memphis area. Organizations can create a profile for themselves and provide information about their mission, staff, major programs, and finances. Visitors to the site can search these profiles and find organizations that are working on issues important to them. Do you want to know more about after-school tutoring programs in South Memphis? Or animal services agencies in East Memphis? Or environmental causes in Midtown? WHEREtoGIVE will allow people to immediately a financial contribution of any size directly to them.

Learning objectives include discovering:
• How this unprecedented community information system that helps citizens better understand community needs and the nonprofits working to address them.
• How to harness 400+ data sets from many sources to clearly and compellingly present information on the status of our community, down to the neighborhood level.
• How the development and implementation of the complementary sites were completed and how other cities can replicate their successes.
