They report an annual income of $2.8 Trillion. But the whole sector faces data and insights related challenges: * There is a lack of access to insights to understand the social sector holistically and across issue areas. * Relevant content is too sparse on the general web and drowned out by noise. Quality content exists, but it is fragmented among different portals that offer a niche view of the complete picture. * The sector lacks custom data, research, and advisory services to gain efficiencies in go-to-market, tech development, policy, and operations that other industries enjoy. Executive Leadership Human Resources Product Innovation Diversity, Equity & Inclusion wMarketing & Communications Sales & Fundraising Customer Success Information Technology Discover Tech for Good companies by impact area, organization type, diversity badges, and more.
