How are you using data?

NTEN is leading a research project to illustrate the realities, challenges, and plans for data use in nonprofits. We’re eager to provide data for the sector that can serve as benchmarks for future research. We’ve launched a survey that includes questions about how your nonprofit is collecting, managing, and using data, as well as what challenges you may face with data. 

We hope to hear from staff at nonprofits of all sizes, budget ranges, and mission types. Your job title doesn’t matter so long as you can answer questions about the ways data is collected and used across teams in your organization, what kinds of policies you have in place, and the challenges your organization faces with regard to collection, management, and analysis. If that’s you, please share your feedback!

The findings from this survey will be published as a free report and used to inform the creation of several additional resources made to support challenges and needs nonprofits report from their organizations.

The survey includes 40 questions, and we anticipate it to take about 15 minutes to complete. The results will be compiled into a report scheduled for release in summer 2020.

As our way of saying thanks, you’ll be able to enter a drawing for one full registration to the Nonprofit Technology Conference or an NTEN professional certificate of your choice
