Nonprofits and Data

last person joined: 3 days ago 

This group is for those interested in learning and sharing about all things data-related for nonprofits. The Nonprofits and Data group is for people using data to serve a mission, either directly or by improving nonprofits and the nonprofit sector. That includes everything from collecting data and managing databases to analytics, data visualization and data mining. Here are some examples of topics we discuss: using data to improve organizational effectiveness, measuring impact, using data for storytelling, tools for data management and analysis, figuring out the “right” data to collect, and learning skills to help us use data better.

The Data Community Group will be at 18NTC - will you?

    We're excited to have the opportunity to meet you in person in New Orleans, including at some Data community specific sessions and events! (For those of you who will not be able to join us, we'll aim to have some post-NTC recapping and debriefing to share everything we've learned.)


    Opportunities to connect:


    Opportunities to get involved:

    • Host a Birds of a Feather lunch table - We are looking for 1-2 volunteers who can act as hosts and represent our group on Thursday and Friday.  Please reply directly or reach out to any of the co-organizers (Stacy, Emilio, Janice) if you're interested.

    Can't wait to get to meet more of you in person!  And also my co-organizers :D  Hope you'll consider swinging by for our Connect session or eating lunch with us at the Birds of Feather table...maybe even hosting?

    Unfortunately, I have a client conflict for these dates - and unless Scotty gets his act together to allow me to beam between Chicago and New Orleans by then, I'll have to just make sure to protect next year's dates instead. I will miss meeting everyone!

    18NTC is next week! I look forward to meeting members of this wonderful online community in New Orleans soon. If you're attending the conference, I hope you have made some time in your schedule for these. We'll be sure to keep the learning and sharing flowing after the conference, too, for those who cannot make it.
