The 2011 Nonprofit Data Ecosystem Report

Report published December 20, 2011 in Software, Vendor Satisfaction

The data ecosystem is the collection of tools we use to manage all the ways we interact with donors, volunteers, activists, and supporters.

In 2009, NTEN conducted the first Nonprofit Data Ecosystem Survey as part of this special reserach series to find out about the data ecosystem -- the collection of tools we use to manage all the ways we interact with donors, volunteers, activists, and supporters. We wanted to find out how happy organizations are with each of the tools they use, but also what tools make up their ecosystems, and how happy they are with those ecosystems as well.

We've updated our survey and are happy to provide you with the 2011 results of the Nonrpofit Data Ecosystems Survey:

The report provides:

  • data about which systems and vendors nonprofits are using for specific functions (like email campaigns or volunteer management)
  • grades for the systems respondents are using
  • a look at which systems are most used by organizations working in a particular sub-sector (such as Youth or Animal issues)
  • grades and analysis of the data ecosystems

We hope that, by broadening our view of the software question, we can acheive two things. First, we hope it gives you a resource for helping you make better software selection decisions. Secondly, we hope it helps software vendors better understand the challenges and needs of our sector so that they can address these issues.

After you read the report, share with us what this report means to you and your organization. We love to hear from you.
