In the nonprofit world, resources can be scarce. But there’s never a shortage of data. Nonprofits track finances, services, outcomes and external data about their issue areas. Within all that data are stories waiting to be told.
The world’s best news organizations tell data stories digitally with rich visuals and interactives that make complex data accessible to broad audiences. Nonprofits can apply the same principles and technologies to data they already track.
This panel will explore how nonprofits and news organizations can and should work together to communicate nonprofit data to the public. We’ll also discuss how nonprofits can create their own data stories in house or working with a vendor.
As government agencies increasingly turn public services over to private charities, those charities will control more and more newsworthy data. Collaboration is in the best interest of nonprofits, news organizations and, most importantly, the communities we both serve.
