Minnesota’s Giving Landscape: Good Data Starts with You

Monday, May 18, 2020 1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT

Data informs every aspect of your work as you make decisions about who to fund, where to focus your dollars, and how to quantify your impact. But good data isn’t happenstance. It takes lots of individual actions to help create the data that you use. Join your MCF member peers as we partner with Candid to discuss COVID-19, MCF’s Get on the Map campaign, and the 2020 Giving in Minnesota Report and other tools powered by your giving data.

During this webinar, we’ll dive into the MN Foundation Stats dashboard, MN-specific Foundation Map and real-time data on COVID-19 relief that Candid is using to track philanthropy’s response to the crisis. We will also highlight best practices in data collection (what to collect, geography, giving methods, funding focus areas, populations) and how organizations can collaborate to coordinate data collection strategies that are relevant and accessible to those they serve.

Finally, we review best practices on data sharing and how you can maximize the impact of data collection by utilizing Candid’s eReporting template.

Upon completion of the webinar, attendees can schedule a one-to-one session with MCF’s Communications and Research Specialist, Chris Oien, to work ahead of the June 30, 2020 Giving in Minnesota 2019 fiscal year data submission deadline.
