Nonprofit Open Data Collective
Opening Data for Nonprofit Research
Globally there are dozens of administrative or research databases to track the current population of third sector organizations.

In order to make the data accessible to the research community we have created scripts to download, clean, and process data.
Capture Open-Source Data (T3010 Research Group)
About the research group.
The T3010 DATA USERS RESEARCH GROUP is a group of interested individuals who want to share information about the T3010 data. T3010 form is the Registered Charity Information Return under the supervision of Charities Directorate, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It is operated on a voluntary basis. Since 2011, members of the T3010 Data Users Research Group have regular discussion by teleconference on different challenges associated with the use of T3010 data. The interests of the members of the T3010 data users group are wide ranging in terms of applicability, but are also focused on a) having access to a common data set that would provide a basis for comparative research; b) identifying the incidence of errors and oversights which could be addressed, either by CRA or researchers; c) identifying gaps in T3010 data which prevents research from taking place; and d) engaging in collaborative research.
