Data Analytics

Is the process of analyzing large data sets to generate useful insights and connections with the ultimate goal of improving a nonprofit’s decision making and impact. Our social sector suffers from increased demands from funders to provide consistent and realiable data and everyday we are faced with combining data from many sources. We have partnered with Logi Analytics to provide nonprofits with an ad-hoc reporting solution for data analytics, creating visual presentations, and aggregating data from multiple nonprofit resources into community dashboards.

Ad-hoc Reporting

All nonprofits should have the ability to generate reports from their mission critical applications for funders, board members and other community stakeholders. With our new investment into Logi Analytics, we plan to start converting the 4000 reports we currently support across our nonprofit clients and empower our clients with a new solution. This will eliminate the cost of customized reports and allow the GWg staff to focus their time on other solutions to meet the needs of our nonprofit community.

Data Visualization

Data visualization is the graphical display of abstract information for data analysis and communications to stakeholders. As nonprofits, we take pride is sharing our mission through stories and data visualization is a new solution to further engage funders, donors and community leaders. Our cloud based solution enables us to provide you a solution without any requirement to move your data from your existing source.

Community Dashboards

Community Dashboards can help nonprofits, program funders, and grant makers illustrate program impact in real time and over extended periods of time. Our cloud based solutions can aggregate data from many nonprofit organizations and government funders serving the same community into one visual interactive display. As data is updated at the individual sources, the dashboard is automatically updated to provide the latest results and trends.

In a recent study by GroundWork group with Columbus based nonprofits

  • Ninety-six percent of nonprofits said they recognized the need for data driven decision making in their organization and forty-eight percent expressed a critical need for data analytics.
  • Almost half of nonprofits expressed their inability to capture consistent data and understanding what data needs to be collected to solve their specific problems.
