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.

Next Data Community Call: Thurs., Sept. 26, 2019

  • 1.  Next Data Community Call: Thurs., Sept. 26, 2019

    Posted Sep 12, 2019 06:45
    Save the date for our next call!  We're meeting Thursday, July 25, 11 AM Pacific/12 PM Mountain/1 PM Central/2 PM Eastern.

    At the end of our last community call, a suggested topic was security, for example, around things like allowing contractors to access organizational data as part of their scope of work (SOW).  So this month we'll be discussing data security challenges, best practices, and advice.

    You are welcome to come with thoughts or questions, or just to listen in and hear where the conversation goes.  As always, if time permits we'll open the floor to anyone who would like to share their screen and/or talk about a data project they're working on.

    Open the collaborative notes Google doc and then join the conversation online or by calling:
