Make Big Data Work For You and Your Grantmaking

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

We’re usually on the receiving end of Big Data.

Ever notice those ads on your web browser that seem to know exactly what your individual interests are? That’s the power of Big Data—the ability to crunch information in order to access and facilitate even more data that meets your specific needs.

So how can we make Big Data work for us? How can data crunching better inform our grantmaking practice?

Harnessing Data

How would you adjust your grantmaking if you knew where the funding gaps were? If you knew who else was funding your grantees? If you could identify other funders who are working on the same issues as you?

Intrigued? Then you should definitely attend NCG’s upcoming program Visualizing the Past, Present and Future of California Philanthropy on May 13th to hear from philanthropic leaders who are harnessing the power of Big Data to inform their funding decisions.

Two Ways to Join Us

In the spirit of the times, you have two ways to participate in our May 13th program—in person or online.

If you can make it in person, we’ll be convening at the Foundation Center here in San Francisco.

If you can’t join us in person, you can watch the Livestream of the program.
