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.

    Since the screen sharing was such a hit last time, we will be using Zoom again (though of course, turning on your video is optional)!  Towards that, we would really like to know what topics you'd like to discuss and any ideas you have for the show & tell portion (data viz is great, but what else would you like to see or share?)

    Please let us know via this short survey: Data Community Call Topics (May 2019)

    We'll use the survey responses to help us select a topic for the upcoming May call, and we'll save the other ideas for future calls.

    Look forward to hearing what you want to talk about next and chatting in real time in a couple weeks!

    Hi Janice
    There are other IT resources in the system I am part of.  May I forward the invite or send you their email addresses privately?

    Are you asking whether you can invite others to the call even if they haven't officially joined this group?  Certainly!  Feel free to share with anyone you think is interested or would benefit.

    If you are asking something else, feel free to message me and let me know!

    Hello,
    I am glad I can listen to the call.  Easier to use the client on my laptop but I am in a remote location at moment

    For the next call perhaps we could discuss APIs and having access to a collection of them.  I will elaborate on what I mean later
