After about six weeks of drawing interest, building new friendships, and researching our brains out, we’ve managed to collect 27 donations from organizations and individuals who are rallying behind the Bay Area Research Project. The result? We’re inspired, and working harder than ever to close the funding gap, and publish our final research.
Why Donating Is Important
Hitting the $800 donation goal is more than a matter of pride for us. Achieving our goal proves that ground-up, community-oriented projects are viable means for LittleSis to sustain itself in a future where grants and traditional sources of funding are scarce.
Cool Stuff We Have Already Done
If you haven’t donated yet, take a look at what we’ve already produced from our research:
- Northern California Elite: Interlocks – OK, so wealthy, successful Californians businesspersons share corporate connections. But did you know that many sit on government boards and University Trustee Boards? Can you guess which politicians they donate the most money to?
- In-depth company profiles on: McKesson, Apple, Chevron, and Hewlett-Packard
- Eyes on the Ties Visualizations
