What does it mean for a project to be "unfunded"?

Although most organizations which work with The Dark Data Project are funded in some way, a key requirement for a project to be eligible for pro bono assistance from The Dark Data Project is that the project itself be unfunded. For example, it's fine if there are paid staff assigned to the project, but a project would be ineligible if the requesting organization had accepted external funding specifically available for the project.

As a rule of thumb, pro bono assistance is intended for projects which otherwise would not be undertaken due to lack of time, money or resources.
