Charities & Nonprofits

We empower charitable organisations, membership bodies, trade unions and nonprofits to unlock hidden insights within their data and maximise impact!

Our expertise in Charities & Nonprofits

Charities and nonprofits hold a wealth of data. Harnessing this data is key to understanding beneficiaries, demonstrating accountability to donors and volunteers, and making informed decisions, to maximise your impact.

However, valuable data often gets trapped in siloed systems – fundraising platforms, volunteer databases, and membership records. This fragmented data makes it difficult to get the complete picture you need to truly make a difference.

Too often data is in systems that are unable to communicate with each other and presents many challenges when it needs integrating to create the trusted insights to make the most informed and impactful decisions.

At Simpson Associates, we believe data is a powerful tool for social good. We bring vast expertise to help charities and nonprofits connect the dots to transform data into actionable insights that can be relied upon. We’ve partnered with leading organisation like the British Heart Foundation, Alzheimer Society and Royal British Legion. 

“All charities need to make best use of the charitable funds that they have at their disposal,” said Jon Fox, Alzheimer’s Society. “Leveraging the power of data is key to achieving this.”

Challenges and Solutions faced by Charities and Nonprofits

Be confident that we understand all challenges are unique and so are our solutions. We adapt them to your evolving needs as you navigate your data journey. Allow us to harness the potential of your data, simplifying the process for you to deliver outstanding services.

Our information scattered across disparate systems from fundraising platforms, to customer databases, making it difficult to get a complete picture. What are the best practices for centralising and managing data for non-profit organisations?

Creating a central single view of the volunteer, member, donor etc. and integrating data from multiple systems to accurately match records, provides a single trusted view, so you can benefit from improved decision making with complete data insights.


Like most charities, we operate on a tight budget and have a lean team. Investing in expensive data management systems and hiring dedicated data professionals can feel out of reach. How can we leverage data effectively without breaking the bank? 

Technologies like Microsoft Azure and Fabric are designed to be cost-effective and scalable. They offer the power and flexibility you need to transform your data into actionable insights, without breaking the bank. These solutions can be easily integrated with your existing systems, so you don’t need a team of data specialists to get started.


As a Charity, we collect rich data including personal details, donation history, event participation, and more. But merging these disparate data sets into a useable source can be complex and a time-consuming headache.

We’ll seamlessly merge your data from various systems, eliminating the headache of managing different systems and manually analyzing data. We’ll help you to use data analytics to extract valuable insights that empower data driven decision making and maximise your impact.

Solutions & Services

We offer a range of solutions and services that have been created with Charities and Nonprofits in mind. These include: Our Modern Data Analytics Assessment, Microsoft Fabric Accelerator, and an AI Assessment.
