We can work with you on a project or ongoing basis to increase your fundraising capacity by using research and analysis techniques to identify funding prospects from within your database and outside of your organization.
We promote excellence in data management – “Smart Data” – by helping managers to:
- Select an appropriate database
- Get the most out of their investment through skillful usership
- Establish sound data collection, entry and review procedures
- Design efficient reporting systems to support revenue generation
- Identify fundraising prospects through analytical techniques
We provide core skills training (e.g. how to use software; how to develop policies and procedures for data collection, entry, and upkeep; how to clean a messy database) as well as integrative instruction on how to make your data ‘smart data’ (e.g. data mining, pulling informative reports, prospect research techniques, and establishing a formal policy framework for data management).
Young Associates delivers training and organizational development services through Compass and Flying Squad grants, where we undertake data management systems review and “tune-up,” complemented by staff training.
We provide one-on-one coaching and mentoring as well as group instruction. Training can be delivered on-site at your office or in our seminar room.
