From Data to Action:   Visualizing Data for Fundraising – CFRE Certified


Learn How to Use Your Nonprofit Data to Raise More Funds

Amelia Kohm, PhD, Founder of Data Viz for Nonprofits

Almost every nonprofit has two superpowers. The first is the data that they have packed away in databases and spreadsheets, often collecting virtual dust on their servers.

The second is the visual faculties of donors and staff members. While most of us glaze over at the sight of a spreadsheet, humans are wired to process visual information at lightning speed. By showing data in engaging visual formats, we can conquer common nonprofit challenges.

You will leave this webinar with a clear understanding of:

  • The two superpowers your organization already has and how to wield them more often and more effectively.
  • How you can use data visualization (data viz) to address key problems you face raising funds for your organization.
  • The types of vizes you should be using for fundraising.
  • How to turn a good viz into a great one.
