Project Details

What We Need
  • A set of key metrics to regularly track
  • Spreadsheet tool to collect data on key metrics with accompanying tables and graphs for analysis
  • Training for best practices on data collection
  • Training on how to use the spreadsheet and analyze key metrics
  • Note: This project does not include data entry or analysis
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have spreadsheets with contact information, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have many projects that required data collection, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $6,868 , allowing us to use spreadsheets, and other free resources that are relevant to data collection.

As a non-profit organization, we want to capture the impact our work is doing with residents of San Jose, CA. This will help our organization grow with community members and will help us when applying for grants.
