Sparrow will be at ESRIUC to share how they are using GIS / mapping technology to help non-profits with donor retention, engagement and acquisition.
SAN DIEGO - July 2, 2019 -- Sparrow Data Solutions is pleased to announce they will be participating at the 2019 International Esri User Conference (ESRIUC), July 8-12 in San Diego, CA. Sparrow Data's Martha Rodgers, who has recently returned from WASRAG's World Water Summit in Germany, will be sharing her experience and thoughts about Special Project Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), in particular, enabled by using Esri's ArcGIS technology and solutions. Additionally, Sparrow Data will be exhibiting and can be found in the special projects area. Attendees are encouraged to connect with Sparrow Data to learn more about increasing donor engagement, retention and acquisition with GIS - the perpetual donation engine!
"Using technology to help non-profits build an Impact Statement that your donors will never forget"
Sparrow launched in 2018 in order to help non-profit organizations collect, process, and report their work to current and potential donors using specialized GIS tools. "We recognized the growing desire of many donors to not only see where their investments are being used but also, to visualize the outcomes of their work. "Unfortunately small NGO's sometimes struggle to access the same funding that larger NGO's receive in order to do the critical task of Monitoring and Evaluating their work to show Sustainability. To help out we decided to create a company that can provide them with the same tools as larger NGO's without having to hire full-time specialists." (Martha Rodgers, co-founder, Sparrow Data)
Sparrow's experience and flexible approach allow them to build a plan that helps non-profits effectively collect field data, make informed decisions based on the real-time state of their projects, and tell the organization's story to potential donors.
NGOs and others interested in this space, be sure to connect with Martha Rodgers to learn more about Sparrow Data GIS services and the work they've done with non-profits around the World. Attendees at UC can find Martha at the Map Gallery reception (Monday evening - look for the Sparrow Data Poster), near the Sustainable World Community area in the exhibition hall, or connect directly via Twitter @sparrowdata
