Why are dashboards important for nonprofit organizations

More data is being produced now than ever before, leaving nonprofits with a tough yet important task: transforming your complex numbers into easy to understand visualizations.

It is crucial to effectively communicate nonprofit’s progress and outcomes. If visualized data is used correctly, it is the perfect way to engage your audience while successfully getting your point across. Whether it be nonprofit’s event results, member demographics, donor giving patterns, etc., visualizing data will help draw conclusions in an easy- to- read manner.

Data analysis and visualization are important for volunteers, communities, funders and policymakers to gain insights on the impact of the work, making decisions, for collaborating and for strategic planning. Power BI and other Business Intelligence tools will help make visual insights of your raw data making it easy to read and share. The reports and dashboards created using Business Intelligence tools help in communicating your outcomes effectively.
