Data can help you communicate the impact of your programs. By presenting your data visually, you can tell the story behind the numbers. During this webinar we'll share with you the eight principles of communicating with data—from defining your question to designing simple, clear images. We'll also discuss how to choose your visualization and review useful tools that can help you show your impact. By the end of this session you'll have the knowledge you need to create visuals that convince donors, supporters, and your teammates that your work is worth investing in.
Is your nonprofit data-driven? In a world full of big data, predictive analytics, and artificial intelligence it can be a little intimidating to answer this question. Yet, when you take a step back and focus on the basics it’s refreshing to see that being “data-driven” isn’t as difficult as it may seem.
During this one hour session we’ll focus on data-driven fundraising concepts, specifically segmentation techniques you should be using to identify donors to engage with at the end of the year. We’ll discuss strategies and tactics aimed at helping you focus your attention on the right donors at the right time and ultimately maximize your capacity to raise money.
