United Way of Larimer County recently launched a new Data Dashboard featuring funded nonprofits’ program outcomes. What does that mean? We want to know how programs are working in the community – how we’re making a difference and if we are really helping people’s education, self-sufficiency, and well-being. The dashboard is on a shared site with Larimer County’s Department of Health and Environment and provides a comprehensive look at 39 of United Way’s funded organizations’ program outcomes.
The data dashboard helps United Way in a number of ways. Our Board of Directors and Community Impact staff wanted a way to track how United Way's funded nonprofits were assisting community members, and we wanted a tool agencies could share with other funding sources, their board members, and stakeholders.
The dashboard’s purpose is to:
Help the public monitor and learn more about programs United Way funds in the areas of Youth & Education and Financial Stability.
Share data with funding partners, donors, and other stakeholders in a centralized, easy to find location.
Demonstrate collaboration and community-wide initiatives that help families.
Identify program gaps that United Way could be funding.
Track data over time to improve low performing programs or scale high performing programs.
Visit the dashboard to learn more about the important work Larimer County agencies are doing to help families.
