We require an efficient method to collect data, metrics to define what data we should be collecting, and an understanding of why the data is important and how it can be effectively used to better align with our mission, strategic plan, and the goals of our programs and services; to cultivate, solicit, and steward donors, and potential funders; and to stay relevant and address community needs. We need a system that is cost-effective and flexible as our programs/reporting needs change.
Building data collection metrics will enable us to apply for grants to support our programs; report on the output. outcome, and impact of our programs to funders, donors, members, and other vested parties; and evaluate the success of our programs, based on our goals. This project will empower us to develop new programs more effectively and gain more meaningful insight on our overall impact in the community.
