Could your organization benefit 

from analytics assistance?

The answer is “yes” if you are asking these kinds of questions:

  • Is our organization having an impact? Are we meeting our mission?
  • What measures should we be tracking to assess our success? How can we better demonstrate our impact to funders?
  • How can we use the data we collect to operate more efficiently and effectively?
  • Should we consider developing a new service?
  • Should we redesign or retire a current service?


Pro Bono Analytics will connect your organization to volunteer experts skilled in using analytical processes and tools to help answer tough questions like these. 

Our volunteers are working
with organizations like these:

  • A homeless shelter for women and children: enabling the organization to better understand and utilize the data they collect.
  • A social action nonprofit: designing a survey tool to assess how well they are meeting the needs of villagers in Haiti, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.
  • A family service agency: advising on how to standardize data collection and better coordinate care across a range of programs.
  • An association of music therapy professionals: helping the organization make a critical decision on whether to change certification requirements.
