Philanthropy is making growing use of the latest data visualization tools to analyze and share information. To hear about tools that your organization could utilize, watch this webinar on Mapping Philanthropy: How You Can Use Data Visualization to Do Good.
During this webinar, you would hear the Foundation Center’s George Ford and Jake Garcia discuss visual grantseeking tools and solutions. You would look at how grantseekers can use the interactive maps and charts in Foundation Directory Online – the Foundation Center’s grantseeking database for nonprofits – to identify prospective funders. Next, the webinar turns your attention to several data visualization tools developed by the Foundation Center and other organizations that showcase how the philanthropic community has responded to a variety of issues.
This webinar is appropriate for nonprofits and libraries wanting to know more about data visualization and grantseeking.
