As the pandemic continues to create great uncertainty in virtually every facet of our lives, funders are increasingly motivated to donate to nonprofits who are providing essential services to society’s most vulnerable populations. As a result, nonprofits have a unique opportunity to cultivate new donors by sharing the important work they are doing to support their constituents during this difficult time. But for many organizations, the question of how to tell a compelling story that captures the depth of your impact remains. Data that shows your organization’s recent response efforts and highlights progress towards goals over time is the key to tell stories that inspire funders to donate. Join us for a session to learn how to leverage data to tell your nonprofit’s story of impact. You will learn:
- Why telling your organization’s story with data is especially important now
- How to develop your organization’s impact framework in 4 simple steps
- How to collect, manage, and analyze data with flexible reporting tools
- How to combine qualitative and quantitative data to tell compelling stories that drive donors to act
This will be in a meeting format to allow break out room participation.
