90% of businesses understand what it means to enable data-driven decision making at all levels, but only 7% have so far made this a reality.*
For NFPs, access to data and use of that data is now becoming increasingly critical as an operational tool. Data is used to build a case for funding, to determine what works and what doesn’t, demonstrate impact, advocate for what is needed and change policy.

Community organisations, not for profits, philanthropists and Government policy makers all need easier access to data for better decision making and the ability to take faster actions. But, how can this happen for all NFPs, irrespective of size?
It’s important to empower people working in the social sector with data. If not, the risk is that a data divide will emerge between those organisations who have easy access to data, such as Governments and large businesses, and those NFPs and local organisations doing the essential work on the ground to improve lives in our society.
