Driving Impact with Data
To know what is working and having a real impact in our Greater Austin community, we track impact data.
When we share what we know – and what we learn – with the community, we provide our partners with powerful tools. That’s why we gather, analyze, and report out critical data about needs and trends here in Greater Austin.
A Mission Capital-led group founded by Andy Roddick Foundation, Applied Materials Foundation, Central Texas Summer STEM Funder Collaborative, Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, St. David’s Foundation, and United Way for Greater Austin.
This collaborative focuses on providing nonprofits with the training, resources, and tools they need to collect and analyze data in order to better understand their impact.
Join us. Let’s do this the United Way.
Together, we are building a community where every child enters Kindergarten ready to learn and thrive, every person connects with community resources promoting health, all children are reading on grade level by the 4th grade, and all families are financially stable.
