• What’s the current financial and organizational health of arts & culture nonprofits in the San Francisco area?

• How does our health compare to the rest of the country?

• What can we do to improve our health?

• How can we use data to help us monitor and improve our financial and organizational health?

You care about your organization’s health. So do we. That is why SMU’s National Center for Arts Research (NCAR) has created a free, online diagnostic tool, the NCAR KIPI (Key Intangible Performance Indicator) Dashboard, which allows you to see how your organization compares to organizations like yours nationally on a variety of financial and operating performance indices.  NCAR Director Zannie Voss will share San Francisco specific non-profit trend analysis across disciplines, and will walk you through the Dashboard to demonstrate how it can be used to assess and advance your organization’s health.

Organizations with a full DataArts Cultural Data Profile (CDP) may log into their organization’s actual dashboard in advance to view their scores. Please also feel free to bring your laptop to log in during the workshop. Not sure what your log in information is? Email NCAR at
