Hello, I'm Meena Das
(Pronouns: She, her, hers)
Fundraising Analytics Consultant | Speaker | Trainer | Research Volunteer

Hi there! I'm Meena. I'm a people-driven Fundraising Analytics Consultant. I have a decade of experience in the Tech and Nonprofit industry. I support nonprofits in raising money sustainably. I firmly believe that my empowering Nonprofits across the world contributes to solidifying the commitment of those mission-driven organizations. I extend this mantra to empower small-shops across the world through pro-bono research volunteering as well.

When I am not consulting, I love to get to know my LinkedIn connections better over virtual coffees. I call herself a work in progress empath.​ As a supporter of the idea of extreme experimentation, I believe that we should not be afraid of experimenting because, just like a data analytics model, our perspective improves when we train ourselves with more data.

My recent aha moments include:

  • speaking at multiple seminars on integrating DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility) in research tools.

  • providing pro-bono counseling as Research Advisor to small shops. Projects include conducting programmatic assessment surveys, donor segmentation planning, or one-off training on data analysis.

  • preparing for the CFRE exam (Spring 2022).

  • being member of AFP-Global Research Council.

  • being member of AFP-Vancouver IDEA committee.

  • managing a bi-weekly blog on fundraising analytics related content.

  • mentoring 30+ immigrant women in technology and data science related careers.

  • launching my life-based podcast show "Being and Unbeing an Immigrant".
