Nonprofits and Libraries: It's Time to Move Beyond the Pie Chart

This blog post was originally published on the TechSoup.org blog. Whether you're looking for more creative ways to show your circulation data or want to educate your patrons on data visualization, this series can help you get started. You'll be creating awesome visualizations in no time!

Better ways to visualize your data, including bar charts, line charts, scatterplots, and maps

We know nonprofits and libraries gather piles of data, from program outcomes to constituent data to fundraising or advocacy campaign results. And you probably struggle to turn that data into meaningful insights that can improve your work or tell your organization's story.

That's why TechSoup has partnered with Tableau on a new blog series called "Beyond the Pie Chart."

Have you ever

  • Struggled to translate a bunch of boring spreadsheets into a visual format that's easy for your board, funders, or potential donors to understand?
  • Tried to create a report and couldn't find a chart or graph that would clearly illustrate your point?
  • Thought that analyzing your data was complicated or scary?

Then this series is for you!
