Our Working Groups
The GivingTuesday Data Commons strives to support and promote transparency, capacity-building, and new knowledge in the non-profit and philanthropy sector.
One key approach to achieving these goals consists of promoting collaboration among sector stakeholders with similar goals, needs, and interests. The objective is to prevent the duplication of efforts by allowing stakeholders to set the agenda together and reverse the tendency to conduct work in silos.
This collaboration is guided through working groups, which are convened around what have been identified as important areas for a shared approach to research. These groups meet periodically to share latest findings and observations, discuss barriers and obstacles, and identify opportunities to advance their common goals through joint research and shared data.
Giving Tuesday currently host Working Groups for the following topics:
- Donor Advised Funds
- Impact Measurement
- Workplace Giving
- Payments & FinTech
- Academic Research
Anyone passionate about advancing understanding of the landscape of these areas and improving the sector’s capacity to promote generosity and more effectively serve beneficiaries is invited to contribute!
