Subject: Hi. UK Economics prof here, 'innovations in fundraising and effective altruism', airtable-DW tool
Hi. I'm an Economics 'senior lecturer' (something like US Associate/Assistant Professor) at the University of Exeter. I'm building a wiki on 'innovations in fundraising and effective altruism, to appeal to both academics, practitioners, students, and the general public. We hope to engage a wide variety of groups in contributing content, experiences and ideas, and sharing data and information.

The wiki is  innovationsinfundraising.org; feedback is appreciated!

We chose dokuwiki because of the text-storage format, the many plugins, and fairly easy installation and syntax options.

For our wiki, the more systematic information is stored in an Airtable, and we built a Python-based tool to push information from one to the other https://fundingwiki.readthedocs.io/en/latest/    (It worked for a while but now we are having some sort of permission issues; I'll ask for support on this in the other subforum.)
