About this talk

As philanthropy increasingly seeks to advance equity in all communities, it needs to understand the demographics of the organizations being funded (and declined), the people being served, and the communities impacted.

Less than half of grantmakers collect demographic data and even fewer report out intended beneficiaries of specific grants. It requires commitment from foundations to participate in both collecting and sharing their data to ensure that the field has the most accurate data to rely on.

Please join us for this session where participants will: • Learn about field-wide collaborative efforts to strengthen the systems and tools to effectively collect and analyze demographic data; • Learn about the myths and barriers that keep grantmakers and nonprofits from collecting and acting on this information and how legitimate challenges with collecting this data are being solved; • Learn about specific tools to help streamline demographic data collection while reducing the burden on nonprofits.
