Putting Data into Action With Infographics

Your nonprofit collects all kinds of data. Maybe you've analyzed it and figured out how much of an impact your organization is making on your community. Now what? How do you show the rest of the world?

For an increasing number of organizations, the answer is to use an infographic to visually present their data in compelling ways. We’ve pulled together some our favorite examples below.
