Data Science Now is a one-day program covering various applications of analytics, fundraising and best practices for integrating data science into the development office. The event draws leaders in the field of fundraising analytics to discuss theory, method and applications of data analysis in non-profit fundraising.  

Who Should Attend?

Fundraising analytics professionals, prospect researchers interested in fundraising analytics and development professionals who want to understand how to implement data science in their office. 

Attendees Will Learn:

  • How to get started in fundraising analytics
  • New methods and applications to be implemented in their office, whether small or large
  • Integration tactics for analytics with traditional development environments
  • Implementation strategies for fundraising analytics
  • Strategies for donor retention

Attendees will also have multiple opportunities to share experiences with colleagues, establish new professional contacts and gain materials to help them improve their work.
