How To Catalyze Your Fundraising With Regional Data
Learn about Greater Houston Community Foundation’s regional indicators initiative Understanding Houston and how this resource can assist your organization in its fundraising and grant writing efforts. The Understanding Houston website (www.understandinghouston.org) houses data on hundreds of indicators assessing quality of life for the three most populous counties in our region – Fort Bend, Harris, and Montgomery counties. The team will spend some time providing a tutorial on how to use the website and its many features, looking over some of the data, and discussing the data sources used.
