Nonprofit organizations can use data to help communities and funders better understand their work. But how do you know which data to use? And where do you find it? And critically: once you have data to share, how can you use it to tell a story about your organization?

TechSoup is collaborating with DataCommons.org and Tech Impact’s Data Innovation Lab to help answer these questions. We know that organizing the data you need in a meaningful way can be difficult, especially if the data comes from many different places. In this webinar, you will learn how DataCommons.org helps to address this challenge, and how we are working together to make it as easy as possible for small organizations to use public data to share stories about their work and impact.
