Nonprofit Partner Testimonials

Read about the experiences that a few of our nonprofit partners have had with a Develop for Good team!


"Develop for Good provided us with smart, creative and mature students who were able to effectively take the WHO/UNICEF tool for improving water, sanitation and hygiene in health care facilities and create a simple and robust application to better track and make local improvements. We look forward to working with them in 2021 to complete and pilot the tool in several low income countries-this type of tool is more important than ever with COVID-19 and fundamentals such as hand hygiene and water incredibly important to keep patients and health workers safe."

"The Develop For Good Team we worked with was amazing. The students added an extra dose of creative energy to our project. They thoroughly researched competitors and came in with a point of view for how best to design our app experience. They shared their perspective, responsed to feedback well, and delivered everything we needed on time. We could not how gotten as far as we did with out them. I would work with Develop for Good again for future projects. I would also highly recommend the students I worked for job opportunities."

"The team at Develop for Good was professional, curious, and talented well beyond their years. They demonstrated leadership and guided me on key decisions in developing my organization's web site quickly and thoughtfully. I felt comfortable introducing them to our group's stakeholders (cancer patients and survivors), who loved their work and had a productive brainstorm with them. By building a professional-caliber web site, Develop for Good has positioned us to have meaningful introductory conversations with new patients, partners and donors. I'm proud to share our web site with others, and grateful for Develop for Good's help! I'd work with any of these wonderful students in this or other contexts again and look forward to following their promising careers!"

"Develop for Good has been instrumental in helping our team of scientists to share thousands of specimen data with the public. These data will be uploaded to the Smithsonian’s online database for research and educational purposes. Undoubtedly, this important outreach project would not have happened on such a vast scale without this organization’s help."

"We are so grateful to Develop for Good for their amazing help. There is no way we could have even dreamed to have such capable help available to us without this program, as we are on a very limited budget and our constituencies needs dictate how we use any resources available. It's too difficult to find funding to get the sort of help we really needed, but only were able to receive thanks to this program!"

"The team we worked with was professional and friendly. It was obvious they were very skilled in what they were tackling and had some great ideas to help us make decisions along the way. We truly appreciate all the hard work they have done so far and look forward to seeing the final product. We were very lucky to have been part of this program."

"While the Covid-19 crisis has impact on projects’ normal delivery, CARE International in Myanmar has been looking for alternative digital solutions for running our training program around sexual harassment in the workplace. We were fortunate to know Develop for Good is providing pro-bono digital services for nonprofit organization like CARE and they selected our project, which we had to say we feel greatly appreciated. We were most impressed by the DfG team for their flexibility, taking time to understand the project and provide us with the support we need. We are still developing the web based training program but the products developed by the team so far is truly satisfying. We wholeheartedly recommend Develop for Good to everyone we know."

"Working with Develop for Good was a fantastic: the team was professional, timely, and adaptable, and prolific. In just a couple of months, they helped 1Day Sooner redesign our website, visualize data from two research projects, and develop an interactive volunteer map for our front page. All of the content that Develop for Good produced was specifically tailored to our needs and of incredibly high-quality. I’m grateful that we can now feature Develop for Good’s work on our website, and I’m excited for 1Day Sooner’s nearly 40,000 volunteers to interact with our new website!"

"Develop For Good has allowed us to expand our vision and develop our first app. We are so excited about the possibilities of this program moving forward. It wouldn't have been considered a possibility without DfG's support."

"The Develop for Good team impressed with their ability to quickly discern our needs and develop an initial design, which they later worked to refine. Working with the diverse group of students provided fresh perspectives to our project, improving elements of the project and expanding our vision of what might be possible for our new map-database interface. "

"The two Develop for Good teams that I managed for CARE's Water Team were excellent, a pleasure to work with, and produced two high quality outputs that will significantly improve our operations and programming. Highly recommend working Develop for Good and learning from their brilliant students and team members. "
