The Role of Data in Funding Decisions

Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 8:30am - 10:30am

Rollins College, Bush Executive Center | SunTrust Auditorium

Donors Forum of Central Florida Special Event

Big data’s not just for the private sector anymore.Charitable funders are becoming more data driven, looking towards measurable outcomes and impact when making funding decisions. Nonprofits will increasingly be asked to report quantitative outcomes, alongside the narrative stories, and should be prepared to answer:

  • How efficient are your programs?
  • Can you measure the impact of your programs?
  • Are your outcomes in line with global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
  • What baselines do you use for self-improvement?

The market is changing, and Central Florida funders are changing with it. New data tools allow funders to be smarter with their money, and nonprofits to hone in on the things they do best. Join us on September 26 to learn more about this market shift and how Central Florida is adapting.

Cost: Free

Featured speakers include:

  • Sandi Vidal, Central Florida Foundation
  • Julie Tindall, City of Orlando
  • Warren H. Lakhan, MPA, CAP, Orange County Community & Family Services Department

This event is co-hosted with the Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership.
