Using Data to Solve the World's Problems

While 90% of individual donors say that nonprofit performance is important when choosing to allocate funds, only
30% actually research to find the most effective nonprofit when giving money, according to a survey by GuideStar and Hope Consulting.  Read more in the attached article from, ‘How Nonprofits Can Use Data to Solve the World’s Problems’ by Victor Luckerson. 

This article also describes how Nurse-Family Partnership uses the data our nurses collect to make the program better for their communities and the families they serve.  Your support has helped Nurse-Family Partnership better support more and more families across the United States through delivering a proven and effective program as well as  one that is informed by the data.

Nurse-Family Partnership could not be as strong without your support and advocacy of our program; as Victor Luckerson writes in the attached article, ‘Though Nurse-Family Partnerships is decades old, their sophisticated, data-focused model seems poised to become the standard for how a non-profit should operate in the 21st century.’
