Collaborating for Greater Impact: Building an Integrated Data Ecosystem

April 27, 2018 • 2 min read

This report from Mowat NFP’s Enabling Environment series analyzes how charities, funders, governments and academic institutions can create a more enabling environment for data collection, analysis and sharing for the charitable sectors in both Canada and the UK.Canada and the UK.Data about the charitable sector is a strategically important asset. But as we move towards an enabling environment, it is increasingly important to focus on data that is accessed, collected, shared and analyzed by the sector as part of their service delivery, research, evaluation and policy advocacy activities. It is also important to recognize that the data used and produced by the charitable sector is part of a wider social sector “data ecosystem.” Adopting this approach, the paper articulates opportunities to advance charitable sector data policy and enhance organizations’ ability to deliver programs and services that are evidence-based, outcomes-oriented and responsive to the needs of the communities they serve.
