Learn to Advocate with Data: Join our Map Readiness Webinar Series

By Esther Needham on November 28th, 2016

As a nonprofit, you do great advocacy and community work, but its often hard to find a way to stand out from the crowd. Funders, board members, and elected officials want to see the work you’ve done and the data to back it up. Data visualization and mapping can help with that!

The Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children (DVAEYC) modeled and mapped areas of high need for childcare with our team. By sharing these maps with local elected officials, DVAEYC was able to win $1 million from funders and local government for their advocacy work.

Join us for the first installment of our Map Readiness Webinar Series to learn how DVAEYC acquired and used data to win $1 million in funding – and how you can use data in your organization.

Even if you’re a brand new beginner, you can put data to work for your organization in a few simple steps, and we’ll be here to help you along the way.
