For staff and trustees of grantmaking organizations who have an interest in early childhood

Data and outcomes are critical components of grant making, yet funders can find it challenging to procure the right data, identify gaps in data, and effectively compare data to create sustainable change. Similarly, nonprofits can find the variability in funder data requirements daunting. The Connecticut Early Childhood Funders Collaborative, a project of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy, invites you to join a discussion about sources of data that can inform funders’ work and contribute ideas on improving its use.

In this highly interactive session, presenters and participants will:

  • Hear from experts on sources of available data and how to use it effectively
  • Share information about how they use data and report outcomes
  • Identify indicators linked to child outcomes
  • Explore how to select a few key indicators to inform your work
  • Discuss ideas for developing common data collection and use practices
  • Learn how the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving is piloting the use of neighborhood level data to promote local learning and action.
