About ShareProgress

( The ShareProgress Team )

At ShareProgress, our mission is to help progressive organizations achieve success through the use of data and technology. Innovations in these fields have made it possible to organize and campaign more effectively than ever before, but most groups don’t have the knowledge or ability to take advantage of these advances. We help progressive organizations harness these innovations for their work.

For us, progressive means more than just the political left. It describes any organization working to help and protect the less fortunate amongst us or to make life better for the population at large: improving our cities, protecting our environment, encouraging civic engagement, fighting for economic justice, and providing training and opportunities for those who haven’t traditionally had access to them. Our primary focus is on nonprofit organizations, but we consider any company with an inherent social good mission to be progressive as well.
