Nonprofit Data for Beginners: Asking the Right Questions

Event Date: 
Thursday, February 8, 2018 - 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Simply collecting data is not enough. Deciding early on what you will do with that data—and why you want it in the first place—will help you to define goals and approaches. We'll talk through how to define your organization’s own data-based metrics strategy from the ground up.

The term “big data” gets used (and misused) a lot, making it seem scary and expensive. But bigger isn’t always better. Gathering the right data—and knowing how to use it—is what matters. Join Idealware for Nonprofit Data for Beginners, a three-week course designed to help you ask the right questions, find the data you need, and use your data to strengthen your organization.

Through participation in this course, you will: 

  • Consider what questions you need your data to answer.      
  • Learn how to define your goals and develop processes for collecting your data.
  • Explore the many places where you can find useful data.  
  • Learn how to manage your metrics and data so that they remain useful over the long term.  
  • Dive into case studies of real organizations using data to make decisions.
