Finally, you can equip yourself with these tools and techniques for creating effective solutions to solve numerous challenges the non-profits face today.
It's hardly a news that many for-profit organizations have used data science techniques to become high-performing. Although the non-profit industry has advanced using CRMs and donor databases, it has not fully explored the data stored in those databases.
