Historically, communicating and distributing key indicators and metrics about your nonprofit to stakeholders has been a manual, time consuming process. Today, there are a host of accessible tools for nonprofits that can automate dashboarding tasks, make interactive reports, and help you tell a compelling story about your nonprofit. If you’re not using dashboards today, it’s time to consider moving in that direction and here’s why it’s important.

  1. Engage donors. Everyone likes a good picture, especially donors. Turning your spreadsheets into an interactive dashboard on your website is a great way to engage funders and communicate important information in a more compelling way.
  2. Create a living annual report. Nonprofits change quickly, so why provide just one report each year? Also, printing costs add up! Tell your story through interactive tools that show how you are doing today, not 9 months ago. Here’s an example of our living annual report.
