Data Intelligence

Grantmakers have compiled huge stores of information about their grantseekers, grantees, and impact on the world.  Using that data intelligence to inform strategy, practice, and grant decisions can relieve the burden on grantees to continue to provide the same data again and again, and offers grantmakers the opportunity to compile and share data that delivers a big-picture story across organizations and beyond individual grants.

As data intelligence has become more relevant, grants managers have become recognized as data analysts, a role they have played for years given their work with the data around grantmaking. Collecting and making sense of data is fundamental to the job of grant operations, and grants management professionals are poised to lead their organizations through the development and dissection of data intelligence.
