How do we collect useful, high-quality data to help us make good decisions and tell our impact story? 

Strong habits for data collection and analysis are a critical foundation for every nonprofit. In this three-part series, you will learn fundamental data collection and analysis concepts that will help your organization establish or improve how you use data. Collecting useful, high quality data helps your team make better decisions, allocate resources more effectively, and communicate effectively with donors and funders.  

Part three of this series will address how to craft audience appropriate data products, and will answer questions like:

  • How do we get people to pay attention to our data?
  • How can data visualization help engage our audiences?  
  • How might we blend quantitative results and stories for maximum impact?
  • Where can we repurpose data for different audiences and channels? 

Part one of this series addressed planning for data collection and analysis activities, and part two addressed quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis options. Recordings of both of these are available on the Colorado Nonprofit Association member network. 


Audience members will be invited to engage with several examples that illustrate key data visualization principles.  Groups will also be asked to identify existing data their organization already has that can be repurposed to communicate why they exist, what they do, and where they’re going.  


Fee is for each individual session

  • Free for members
  • $25.00 for non-members
