This workshop, sponsored by Google, will be held June 4 from 10:00-5:00.
How data-driven is your organization? This interactive workshop will help you define what questions you want to answer, how to find or gather the data, and how to use it to make decisions for your organization — whether around fundraising, programs, marketing, or other areas. We’ll think through how to frame questions so they can be answered with data; existing locations where you might find the data to answer those questions; how to gather it if you don’t already have it; and how to get your staff on board to actually use it. With plenty of time to think through your own strategy and work with your peers, you’ll come away with a starting strategy for real-life metrics you can implement right away. Each workshop participant will receive a complimentary copy of Idealware’s Field Guide to Software for Nonprofits thanks to the generosity of BlueCross BlueShield Foundation of North Carolina.
Chris Tuttle gives examples of workshop takeaways and a brief outline of the workshop and his background during an interview with Allison Stafford of NCTech4Good.
We’ll close the day with a Happy Hour Networking event at The Courtyard by Marriott sponsored by Charity Engine.
