Nonprofits and Data

last person joined: 4 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.

    Join us for our February Data Community Call about data visualizations, where we will discuss:

    • Tips for putting together data visualizations quickly and effectively
    • Differences in how you prepare data visualizations for staff, volunteers, the board, and the public at large
    • How visualizations can be used to tell a story
    • Examples of how visualizations drive decision-making (or could drive decision-making) at your organization

    Our community calls are an open forum for discussion, and we welcome participants of all professional backgrounds.

    We invite you to contribute any data visualization you would like to share or discuss to our collaborative notes gallery. You may also contribute during the call.

    Please note:

    • New instructions (below) for joining the call - We will be using Zoom moving forward, so please take note of the new access details.  Also, Zoom offers video, which will allow us to see each other if you have a webcam and so choose. Feel free to opt out of the video function!  
    • Based on feedback from our last call, we will not begin this community call with individual introductions, so we can get to the conversation faster!
