Collection & Organization

§

Collect valuable data to answer important questions. Organize and clean your data for analysis and reporting.

Have you ever thought…

  • I know what data I need, but don’t have the means of getting it.
  • I wish I knew more about my donors and beneficiaries
  • Our data is full of duplicates and hard to work with because we haven’t standardized how we enter names, addresses, and other information.
  • How do the individuals served by my organization compare with the characteristics of the community?
  • We spend a lot of time entering data.
  • Our data is hard to use because it is saved in multiple spreadsheets, in multiple locations, and/or in multiple versions.

How does data collection & organization help your organization? 

Increase funding – Get the support you need to reach your goals

  • Understand your donors and their preferences through donor surveying and donor data collection
  • Clean and update your donor data to make sure you have the right information on your active donors, and so you don’t spend resources on inactive donors

Improve efficiency – Let your staff focus on what matters

  • Clean your data so working with it is quick and easy
  • Standardize your data so you use less time trying to organize and manipulate it
  • Do tasks the easy way through automating data entry and email sending
  • Prevent data mismatch and complex data merging by storing all your data in a centralized database

Enhance Impact – Increase your organization’s effectiveness

  • Measure the impact of your services over time by quickly collecting data and conducting follow-ups
  • Ensure your data will be useful and usable for future analysis through forward thinking data collection, standardization, and organization
  • Understand your beneficiaries’ and community’s needs through surveying and using publicly available databases
