Expanding Audience and Impact Nonprofits Communicating Data to External Audiences

July 15, 2015

Abstract

The ways nonprofits use data vary. Technical and capacity barriers often keep nonprofits from collecting and integrating important program data into their daily work, and additional challenges keep them from communicating that data with external audiences. Mindful of the real constraints that nonprofits experience in collecting and using data, this brief provides insights on how to present data to audiences outside of the walls of the nonprofit. The brief provides examples of and some strategies to effectively communicate program data with external stakeholders such as policymakers, funders, and clients.
