Improve Your Data Analytics Skills

Data has the power to provide invaluable insights that can transform your organization. Recently, our team at CanadaHelps held data workshops designed for professionals working in the charitable sector with beginner to intermediate experience working with data. The workshops, held in multiple cities across Ontario, provided tangible examples and charity case studies on using data to help charities grow their fundraising results and increase their impact.
