Challenges before UpMetrics

  • Experienced fundraising challenges catalyzed by the pandemic.

  • Needed to become more intentional about data collection and analysis.

  • Had gaps in their historical data and data they did have was not always clean.
  • The lack of a strategy in managing their impact data meant it was much harder to tell their organization's story effectively.


After Engaging with UpMetrics

  • Identified and captured key metrics which provided essential demographic information.
  • Ongoing data collection and dashboard updates provide real-time reporting on their impact on the Miami community.
  • Able to use their data to more effectively articulate the impact they are having, which helps them to improve fundraising and continue to provide quality programs.

"ICU Baby is doing critical work for the community. I am going to be able to do so much more for our community with access to these numbers. The dashboards and ease of accessibility to the data is so impressive."
