Nonprofit Blog Carnival Call: Data For Good

Lori Halley 29 May 2013 0 comments

In June, we’ll be hosting the Nonprofit Blog Carnival. There’s no tilt-a-whirl or candy apples involved with this carnival, but we will try to take you on a thought-provoking ride and serve up some fresh ideas.  Each month, we ask bloggers to contribute their thoughts on a nonprofit theme and offer a round-up of submissions at the end of the month.

June's Nonprofit Blog Carnival theme is: Data for Good

There’s been a lot of talk about the importance of transparency and effectively measuring and demonstrating impact in the non-profit sector. So for the June Nonprofit Blog Carnival, we want to hear all about Data for Good.

For example, we want to hear...

  • How are you using data to tell your organization’s story?
  • What data are you capturing?
  • Are you striving to be a “data-informed” or “data-driven” organization (as Beth Kanter suggests)?
  • How are you measuring outcomes?
  • What barriers or hurdles do you face in producing useful data?
  • What advice can you offer non-profits who are “data-challenged”?

How to participate in the June Nonprofit Blog Carnival

If you’d like to share your thoughts on Data for Good, submit your post (or send along one you’ve published recently) – by emailing the URL to nonprofitcarnival@gmail.com – no later than Tuesday, June 25, 2013.

Then check back on this blog on Thursday, June 27th to see the full Data for Good carnival round-up.

In the meantime, check out the May Nonprofit Blog Carnival

During the month of May, Erik Anderson (Donor Dreams Blog) has been serving up “anonymous letter[s] to a nonprofit board about something they do that drives you crazy”. You can head over to the Donor Dreams Blog today to check out the Nonprofit Blog Carnival round-up of “Dear board volunteer . . .” letters.

If you want to become a “Friend of the Carnival” and receive emails twice a month with reminders about the Carnival - click here  to sign up.
