Description

Broccoli & Cheese: Designing Digestible Data

Ever try getting kids to eat their vegetables? For organizations who want their supporters to consume the all-important data that measures their impact in the community, getting a supporter to process the information can often be like getting a kid to try to eat their veggies. But with great design and storytelling, an organization can often serve their supporters a tasty dish that gets them all the data they need. Using examples of successful strategies from GiveMN and other organizations, this presentation will help organizations develop strategies to bring data and design together to tell an engaging story for supporters. Go beyond infographics to using compelling data across mediums and messages!




Presenter: Jake Blumberg, Executive Director (aka Chief Generosity Officer) of GiveMN.

Jake is pretty much obsessed with fundraising and believes that a successful strategy, campaign, and message can expand the impact of the nonprofits and schools doing incredible work in our communities. He has helped lead record-breaking and history-making fundraising efforts—and is totally invested in helping Minnesota earn the title “The State of Giving.”

Jake was named executive director of GiveMN in 2015 and has a background that spans leadership roles in nonprofits, politics, and higher education. As the senior director of development and community engagement at Open Arms of Minnesota, Jake launched multiple online giving campaigns that raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. As co-finance director of Minnesotans United, he helped lead a multimillion dollar campaign in Minnesota to win the freedom to marry for same sex couples. And in Washington D.C., Jake concurrently attained a master’s degree in political management from The George Washington University while working as a speech writer and associate director of development for The George Washington University Law School.

Jake is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Minnesota, University of St. Thomas, and Hamline University, where he teaches courses on fundraising strategy and leadership development.
