Record-keeping is not an exciting word, and inspires equally drab reactions from nonprofits who work to fulfill record-keeping and reporting requirements. But there’s a secret many organizations are just beginning to discover: your data is the key to helping you fulfill your mission—and save the world.

Join VolunteerMatch on April 8, 2014, for a free Nonprofit Insights webinar in honor of National Volunteer Week. Erinn Andrews of GuideStar and Lisa Pool of the Technology Affinity Group, who have partnered on the Simplify initiative, www.simplifynow.org, will share how data and record-keeping in the nonprofit sector are becoming so much more than just the IRS Form 990—and why paying attention to this trend, and engaging volunteers to help you contribute, will help your organization get more funding and support.

Presenters: Erinn Andrews, Senior Director of Nonprofit Strategy, GuideStar USA; Lisa Pool, Consultant/Executive Director, Technology Affinity Group; Shari Ilsen, Director, Engagement, VolunteerMatch
