Monthly meeting introduces members to data resources

At the Network’s May 31 meeting entitled “Examining 24:1 Community Needs Through Data,” dozens of attendees in person and via Zoom learned about demographic data in the 24:1 that people can use for their own organization in grant applications and for internal evaluation of community needs. Director of Data & Analytics Courtney Corman and Data Manager Morgan LeBaige spoke about how organizations can use this data to enhance grant applications and funding requests. 

The conversation, both in person and in the Zoom chat, was lively and engaging. This is typical of Network monthly meetings, where the passion and enthusiasm from Network members is clear. Oftentimes, Network members arrive early and leave well after the meeting ends as they exchange ideas and visit with each other.

Network members can fill out a quick survey to give Network staff a better idea of what future trainings might be useful. A video of the meeting is embedded below, and there are free data resources below that.

Below are a selection of free data resources that can enhance nonprofits’ work in the 24:1:

  • Vision for Children at Risk’s Data Center (ZIP code and county level data)
  • Vision for Children at Risk’s Data Book (ZIP code and county level data)
