Data Mining for Annual Giving

Recorded On: 01/23/2018


It's not enough to simply run reports and compare progress from one year to the next. In fact, the most effective annual giving programs go beyond basic metrics and reporting. They mine their data to understand how, where, and why they're making - or not making - progress, and determine the overall trajectory of their program. Data mining doesn't need to be overly complex; even simple analytics can help assess the true health of the operation while identifying risks and opportunities well in advance.
