Discovering Nonprofit Impact Using a Racial Equity Lens – Part II: Data Collection & Reporting

November 12, 2:00 pm EST - 3:30 pm EST

Register Here

The second part of this Discovering Nonprofit Impact Using a Racial Equity Lens series will pick up on our previous need assessments discussion. We will analyze a sample results data report from a needs assessment. Many organizations collect needs assessment data, yet struggle with how to use the data in the most effective and efficient ways possible.

In an effort to create impact in racial disparities, organizations must begin to place more emphasis on the type of data they are collecting as well as the type of indicators they are monitoring. Without this, organizations can easily become trapped in a never ending cycle of collecting irrelevant and subjective survey data just for the sake of being able to say that they have data.


  • Quisha Brown, Nonprofit Consultant

You will learn:

  • How the development of key performance indicators (KPI’s) derives from needs assessment data
  • Strategies for developing an ongoing data collection and reporting process which allows organizations to effectively track change over time on key performance indicators (KPI’s)
  • About the critical thinking and reasoning involved in developing a theory of change which succinctly explains how an organization plans to significantly impact needs revealed from the needs assessment; while remaining realistic and true to the capacity and work scope of the organization.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
