Pathfinder.vet offers a Brown Bag: Making Tech and Data Work for Non-Profits on June 26, 12-2pm.
How can you use data to reach funding opportunities? What kind of data do funders want to see, and how can we collect it?
Non-profits need data and analysis to make quality, targeted improvements to programs and services. But because of financial structuring and reporting, getting and integrating technology to collect and understand data is typically one of the last investments a non-profit will make.
This panel discussion will talk about how some non-profits and foundations are using data already, some of the ways affordable data projects can help improve communities, and how we can work together to solve challenging problems.
Pack a lunch and join us to learn how to make data work for your organization. There will be snacks, too!
Panel (moderated by Elana Duffy, Pathfinder.vet):
Derek Coy - New York State Health Foundation
Marie Roker-Jones - Blue Star Families
Michael Thorne - Data Engineer, US HHS
