Nonprofits: Why IT and Data Need to be in Sync

Data teams and IT teams are the original partners. In the days of mainframes, those defined as guardians of digitized information were called DP (Data Processing). Today, your nonprofit could be seeing hundreds to thousands of data points daily. 

There’s no denying that some of that information could be used by your organization, and you don’t need to be a statistics major to take advantage of it. Here are some things that can help you understand how your nonprofit can use data for good.

Types of Data to Collect

Data can be found in many of the tasks that are done on a daily basis. Here are some common types of data that nonprofits said they were tracking:

  • Donor and Volunteer Management
  • Email
  • Social Media
  • Events
  • Website Optimization

The collection, management and analysis of data is becoming increasingly more important for nonprofit organizations. Savvy data management and analysis can lead to increased funding and better programs and services and has become critical to sustaining the work of our nonprofit. 

But, Data Management is not simple, especially for nonprofits that lack a data team. There are so many tools, services and options for nonprofits to consider to help them make sense of all the information they're collecting. 

Join us for a webinar focused on managing nonprofit data in a way that not only saves time but allows you to produce outcomes such as:

  • Reports
  • Dashboards
  • and Stories
Let us help you turn your data into actionable information. We will outline important considerations to make while searching for a new data system and implementing a chosen system.
