Nonprofits and Data

last person joined: 5 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.

    Dear NTEN Colleagues,

    (Putting on my Tech Networks of Boston hat.)

    Tech Networks of Boston is very pleased to invite you to visit our new web page, in which we have summarized on our experience and our findings from our three part dialogue series, in which equal numbers of grantors and nonprofit grantees met as peers to engage in reflective structured dialogue on data and evaluation.

    https://techboston.com/about-tnb/blog/best-practices-data-evaluation/

    On this web page you'll find reflections and best practices from the following folks:

    o Yvonne Belanger, Barr Foundation (grant making organization)

    o Sergio Marin Luna, Hyams Foundation (grant making organization)

    o Ellen Bass, Capacity Institute (nonprofit grant recipient)

    o Paula Paris, JFYnet (nonprofit grant recipient)

    o Dave Joseph, Essential Partners (facilitator)

    o Deborah Elizabeth Finn, Tech Networks of Boston (organizer and designated worrier)

    We hope that this will inspire regional and national conversations. You are very welcome to pass along the link to anyone that you think should be in that conversation. You are also welcome to add your thoughts to the web page's comment section, which you'll find at the bottom of the web page.

    Best regards from Deborah

    P.S. I'm really sorry to be missing #18NTC! I hope you are all having a fantastic time!
