Building Data Frameworks for Fundraising Success

Course Overview

Creating an effective data management framework is essential for organisations that now rely on data as their primary asset for fundraising and creating insight to help improve operations.  

Poor-quality data and a lack of proper governance can result in poor outcomes and increase risk. Complying with legislation to ensure the organisation can use data while protecting it from risk is an organisational-wide requirement.
