Impact statement
This project will save us $3,757 , allowing us to provide comprehensive social services (including behavioral health services), free immigration legal support and education services to 2 motivated immigrants in our community for an entire year.

Project Details

What We Need
  • An initial set of Google Analytics reports that can be used to track key metrics about the Organization’s web performance and insights on visitors' interest
  • Training on how to maintain reports and analyze collected data to inform changes to the Organization's web presence
  • Optional: Training on how to create reports and use common insights features in Google Analytics
Additional Details

We've had Google Analytics set up for a few years to track web traffic, but have never had the on-staff capacity to set it up in a way that takes advantage of all the tools offered. We've also recently redesigned our website and built an app that is displaying custom content from our website, so I need reports that can shed some light on user activities and conversions across both platforms.

What We Have In Place
  • We are happy to provide you with full access to our Google Analytics dashboard which currently tracks our website, our Classy Fundraising Campaigns and our MailChimp email engagements.

    As we have also recently redesigned our website, I can provide current site mapping and structure as well as specific goals and conversions we think would be useful to track.
How This Will Help

This project would enable us to evaluate how effectively we are providing accurate, trusted information to our clients about complex issues such as social justice, educational reform, and immigration rights as well identify any barriers that may exist for our supporters to engage with our organization.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.

About The Org

Our Mission

Canal Alliance exists to break the generational cycle of poverty for Latino immigrants by lifting the barriers to their success.

What We Do

Canal Alliance is a nonprofit champion of immigrants who are challenged by a lack of resources and an unfamiliar environment.

We believe that everyone has the right to achieve their dreams.

Every day we educate, empower, support and partner with motivated immigrants and their families to best meet their unique needs - from putting food on the table, to learning English, to becoming U.S. citizens, and graduating from college.
Because when we support immigrants, Marin becomes a place where everyone can live, work and succeed.

Each year, Canal Alliance collaborates with over 40 agencies and engages 500 volunteers to impact more than 4,000 youth, adults and families.

Our project is sponsored by: The San Francisco Foundation
