What happens when nonprofits make a real commitment to collect healthy data about their programs and operations; manage it well; and make savvy, data-informed decisions?

And what happens when you connect energized, smart, data-passionate nonprofit professionals for a year of learning and knowledge sharing?

In 2013, NTEN, Microsoft, and some of the brightest members of the nonprofit technology community have set out to discover the answers. The 18 members of the Communities of Impact are connecting this year through two in-person retreats at Microsoft headquarters, monthly calls with seasoned data practitioners from all sectors, and ongoing engagement via NTEN's online platform.

Whether revamping their organizational dashboards, conducting surveys and compiling case studies, speaking at conferences, or writing a manifesto for their comrades in the field, the Communities of Impact are committed to finding real solutions that actually make a difference in their own organizations and beyond.
