Presentations and Workshops

At Nonprofit Data Solutions, we are able to provide data management systems ideally suited for the needs of nonprofit organizations because we have a deep understanding of how they operate. In addition to providing data management systems, we share our expertise with organization leaders in numerous ways. You can learn about our long-term consulting engagements here. In addition to that, we frequently present one-off presentations and workshops to organization leaders and boards of directors on a variety of topics (below). We can also develop custom presentations that address the specific needs of your organization or network.

Data-Driven Decision Making:

Ensuring that your organization’s programs advance its mission

How does your organization define success? How do you measure your results against that definition? This is often the most challenging question confronting nonprofit leaders. But evaluating your organization’s performance is critically important both for increasing funds and for moving toward fulfilling its mission.

In this workshop we teach organization leaders strategies for evaluating their organization’s progress and to use that evaluation to make strategic decisions for the future.


Stop Leaving Money on the Table:

Using Data To Raise the Last Dollar´╗┐

When you think about it, giving to a nonprofit organization is a strange endeavor – you are choosing to have less money while getting nothing tangible in return. So what are your donors getting in return? In this presentation, we discuss the intangible benefits people receive from making charitable contributions and provide strategies for encouraging those benefits. This will enable you to get the best possible return from your donors.


The Lifecycle of Donors:

From Small Donors to Organization Champions

Fundraising is all about relationships. Your organization has an institutional relationship with everyone that donates to it. And as with any relationship, this evolves over time. Nurture it and it will strengthen over time. Neglect it and it will perish. Learn how to segment your donors based on their relationship to your organization and develop strategies for moving through a lifecycle that will strengthen those connections.
