Driving Impact with Data
To effectively tell the story of our community, we need to know the families living in Greater Austin and the issues they face each day. To know what is working and having a real impact in our community, we track impact data.
When we share what we know with the community, we are providing our partners with powerful tools. In our role as a community leader, we gather, analyze, and report out critical data about our shared community – telling the story of our community and its needs.
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, and all families are financially stable.
