By using data to drive decision-making and analyze effectiveness, nonprofits can better serve vulnerable populations. This paper shares findings to help nonprofits strengthen data collection strategies and use the results to improve communities. 

Using data and evidence intelligently is at the heart of Social Finance’s work. We believe in the power of this information to drive unique partnerships and mobilize private capital in service of society, with the ability to make tremendous strides in confronting the intractable challenges we face.”
