Webinar Recording: Data: Not Another Four Letter Word
This is the first part of a webinar series on digitalization and its impact on community foundations — Digitalization and the Community Foundation Business Model: Data and Transperancy.
Data can be overwhelming. But is it possible to harness your foundation’s data and turn it from a challenge into an asset?
To answer this question, the Council brings together the nonprofit data experts at GuideStar and the first-hand experience of California Community Foundation to discuss the important role of data, transparency, and technology in deepening community impact.
Jacob Harold, GuideStar president and CEO, gives a behind-the-curtain look at how GuideStar collects and distributes 3 billion+ pieces of data—by building platforms, setting data standards, inviting participation, and integrating with partners.
And, Carla Casilli, Program Manager for LA Counts, from the California Community Foundation shares her first-hand account of how their organization harnessed the power of data to impact how they tell the story of LA’s unmet needs.
What can be gained?
This series addresses the realities facing the community foundation business model with rapid digitization and power contained within big data if it can be more readily understood and meaningfully leveraged.
A robust example is being formulated by California Community Foundation, which will be shared, and Guidestar will take a deep dive into its information hub.
