Data priorities for the not-for-profit sector
The timing is right for the not-for-profit (NFP) sector to plan for its data needs. As governments become more interested in creating effective open data policies, and the not-for-profit (NFP) sector increasingly focuses on outcomes, accountability and impact, NFP data needs will grow substantially. To make NFP goals a reality, governments must engage the NFP sector as a key partner and the sector must be ready to respond with its own priorities and strategies for building its data capacity.
