Posiba, an information service for the social sector, announces a partnership with United Way of San Diego County that will help them better understand their results, and their partner organizations’ impact on San Diego’s community. Posiba will help United Way gather, benchmark, and track data for continuous learning and elevate and replicate best practices to better support families and early learners across the county.
“As our mission is about measuring progress, we are delighted to partner with United Way as it takes on this important work,” said Elizabeth Dreicer, CEO and founder of Posiba. “The social sector is just beginning to experience the benefits of widespread access to useable multi-sourced measurement data. Notably, their leadership will inspire others; including those they fund, to leverage data as a means to improve performance. This is how we all get better.”
The world of data, both public and private, is growing exponentially. The social sector can also use this information. Posiba helps customers make sense of and glean meaning from this mass of information, helping them find relevant, meaningful metrics.
“Today's donors and corporate sponsors want to give where it matters and want to know they’re making a difference. United Way is committed to measuring and tracking data for continuous learning to make sure our efforts have the greatest impact possible.” said Shaina Gross, SVP, Chief Impact Officer. “With Posiba’s help, we look forward to showcasing how our work, especially in kindergarten readiness and early grade literacy, positively impacts our community.”
