People care about their personal data and privacy. Nonprofits managing sensitive data must invest in data transparency to help them prevent breaches and gain client and donor trust.
Nonprofits are responsible for maintaining large amounts of confidential data—case logs, client data, and donor contact information. If private client information gets leaked or stolen, it has dire consequences. Studies have shown that the majority of people are likely to avoid organizations that have had a history of data breaches.
Nonprofits also depend on proper data management every day. Data helps nonprofits evaluate how effective their programs are, manage specific projects or cases, support development, and donor stewardship initiatives, and prepare reports for funding agencies.
