Nonprofits and Data

last person joined: 13 hours ago 

<strong>This group is for those interested in learning and sharing about all things data-related for nonprofits.</strong> 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.

I'm looking for a volunteer management system. We currently only have about 200 volunteers but we're looking to grow. Any suggestions of software you've liked/loved would be super helpful!

Here's a thread earlier this year from another group that discusses some databases used for volunteer management:

Does anyone else in this group have work with a volunteer management system they like and would recommend?

Hello Janice and Christa.

We're using Volunteer Hub--which a few people mention on the link that Janice provided--and we are happy with it.

Good luck,
