Data That Drives Change and Redefines Financial Stability

accufund

Many metrics that were part of solid business planning and decision-making are no longer relevant today. The reason for that is data. It is granular and in many cases so precise that the decision is made simply by looking at the numbers. Data is redefining nonprofit financial stability.

Regulators are also changing the rules of the game, seeking greater transparency in how data is presented, particularly financial data. Technology is also a foundation in this new era of information, from hardware to software, including artificial intelligence.

Three nationally-known executives steeped in nonprofit finance will sort through the future of financial underpinnings at nonprofit organizations and will discuss the newest data needs for contemporary decisions.

Does your organization need to begin, or upgrade, its advocacy efforts? The good news is you don’t need a huge budget or commit to a year-long program to not only get your activism off the ground but also compete with the big guys. Organizations with digital advocacy platforms in place to alert supporters to petition their lawmakers when something is going down, such as the ACLU, IRC, Planned Parenthood and Greenpeace, have seen their donations skyrocket in the first two months of 2017.

Having a simple activism playbook and tool in place means they get the word out to take action, fast, creating even bigger advocate networks, and ultimately, bigger donor lists. Learn how you can act like the big organizations, even with a tiny budget or staff, to get the same big results.
