A global community of ambitious data professionals
Our mission is to be the bridge between the not-for-profit world and the world of data analytics practitioners wishing to do social good. Using D&A, we identify, share, and help implement the most effective means for growing NFP people, organisations, and their impact. Our ultimate goal is social good. We believe that data and analytics has tremendous potential to help not for profit organisations achieve greater impact.
Challenges faced by NFPs
Intelligent use of data can significantly increase the effectiveness of charities. This isn’t a new concept. Most, even all, charities use basic data in some way. But the potential of data is significantly enhanced when used by experienced professionals with dedicated D&A tools.
“Non-profits may lack resources, time, know-how and strategy surrounding data and analytics”
Non-profits may lack access to important data analytics tools due to cost constraints and the absence of an economy of scale
Non-profit organisations may not have the required skills for data analytics, such as programming, visualisation, mapping and statistics in house
Given time constraints, non-profits need to maximise and double down on efforts that are likely to succeed
Developing sound business strategy from data & analytics requires a unique blend of analytical and commercial skills
