Nonprofits frequently wonder how other organizations manage data collection and security and what policies they have in place to manage them.
In 2020, we conducted the first Data Empowerment Survey and published the corresponding report. Two years later, with a number of shifting factors for the nonprofit sector in the U.S. and beyond, we were curious about what may have stayed the same or changed with data collection, management, and use.
Our report explores how organizations representing various sizes and mission-focus allocate resources and oversee the tremendous volume of data they collect. We encourage you to use the report to initiate conversations with your colleagues and examine how your organization can manage its data responsibilities.
The 2020 Data Empowerment Report includes several templates to customize data and privacy policies for your organization.
