NGO Connect Standard Reports

NGO Connect Standard Reports

NGO Connect has a wealth of pre-configured dashboards and over 250 editable reports designed to give nonprofit organizations real-time insight into their activities and efforts from the very beginning. While most modern systems should be able to generate these types of reports, NGO Connect provides these right from the start without additional costly set-up or configuration. Through our years of work with nonprofits we have learned that while organizations are very familiar with the data they have in their system, frequently they are not aware of the knowledge and actionable insights that quickly can be extracted from their data. Too often we hear “I had no idea all this information was living in our existing database.”

Case Study: CCSSK Engagement Journey

To get started on a plan for a new engagement center, the Canadian Cancer Society in Saskatchewan (CCSSK) needed to understand how its participants, donors, volunteers and cancer survivors were going to interact with their system. Heller and CCSSK worked together to define how each constituent would be introduced to the organization, how they would first get started, and how their participation would continue over time. This detailed pre-planning laid out a blueprint for the priorities and requirements for the engagement center and clarified how each department would interact. By focusing on the needs of their constituents, CCSSK was able to step away from comparing software features and create an engagement center that truly serves the needs of their constituents.
