Nonprofits today need to quantify the impact of their programs and services to their constituents (board members, donors, volunteers, etc.). Disseminating through what seems to be an endless amount of data can become overwhelming. Here are some Data Visualization tools and tricks, nonprofits can use to reach goals and receive those all too important grants.
Data is a powerful tool, but only when collected, saved, stored, and utilized properly.
Whether that’s donor data being entered into your CRM or ERP system, or properly managing sorting, and and filing important files for easy access. Data is how our nonprofits run in the the 21st century enterprise, and it’s imperative that your nonprofit is up on how exactly it can be more effectively utilized.
The amount of data being created each year is staggering. By 2015 the global annual rate of data production exceeded 5.6 zettabytes; that's double the rate of growth in 2012, according to IDC. Data alone, however, hardly gives executives and board members access to the valuable insights that inform all their decisions and investments.
