Nonprofit Data for Beginners
Thursdays between Feb 8th and Feb 22nd noon - 1:30 p.m.

The term "big data" gets used (and misused) a lot, making it seem scary and expensive. But bigger isn't always better. Gathering the right data-and knowing how to use it-is what matters. Join us for Nonprofit Data for Beginners, a three-week course designed to help you ask the right questions, find the data you need, and use your data to strengthen your organization.

February 8: Asking the Right Questions
February 15: Hunting Down the Data 
February 22: Making Use of Your Data
