To better understand the data capacity of nonprofits in Cuyahoga County, DigitalC is conducting the first ever Data Maturity Survey in the region. We believe that this survey and the resulting interventions will help nonprofit organizations, both locally and beyond, better achieve their missions by leveraging data more effectively. Your organization has been selected to participate in this project because it filled out a 990 in 2015 or 2016 in Cuyahoga County. By participating, you will be representing other organizations similar to yours. The results of this survey will be used to develop interventions aimed at increasing the capacity of nonprofit organizations to collect and use data and to measure impact. The survey will close on August 24th.
Each organization that completes the survey will receive a report with their unique data. This report will let you benchmark your organization’s data maturity against other nonprofits in the county, allowing you to advocate for change within your organization. In addition, all participants will be invited to a release reception of the county-wide report.
The online survey should take about 20 minutes to complete. The survey will promptly close on August 24th, 2018. Your participation is completely voluntary. All responses are strictly confidential. No individual organization's responses will be identified in any reports made to the community or shared with sponsors. A decision to not participate will not alter future interactions with DigitalC or organizations supporting this project. In order to accurately track changes over time, DigitalC's team will house the data indefinitely.
If you have any questions about the project, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or directly by phone at (216) 702-6146.
Thank you in advance for filling out the survey!
