As reported on Civil Society, Data charity DataKind UK is holding a ‘DataDive’ weekend in London from 26th-28th July for three pre-selected charities. The weekend will help the charities understand how to use data more effectively.
With the support of data and technology professionals, charities will learn how to interpret patterns of need and demonstrate these needs to funders. A ‘data scientist’ volunteer will then be assigned to each charity to assist them further.
Charities looking to take part should fill in and submit this web form by the 7th June.
Charities believe corporate fundraising is a key growth area. But recent research by the IoF has revealed that just 7% of charities with a corporate fundraising programme feel that it is “fully developed”. With this in mind, Virgin Money Giving is hosting a series of free live events between 5th and 7th October to help charities grow their corporate fundraising.
