Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep Builder are software applications for data preparation, analysis, and visualization. Through a drag-and-drop interface, they allow users to connect to most databases and spreadsheets, create and share interactive visualizations and dashboards, and prepare data for analysis. No programming is necessary.
This donation provides a two-year license for both Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep Builder for one user. This user may use the software on up to two devices during this time. The product will cease to function entirely after two years unless the subscription is renewed. See the System Requirements tab for more information.
Benefits for Organizations
You can use Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep Builder to
- Reduce time creating reports
- Combine, shape, and clean your data in preparation for analysis
- Automate tasks like grouping similar objects, replacing data from other fields, and creating calculations
- Provide transparency to donors and funding organizations through interactive visuals that illustrate program progress and impact
- Analyze donor trends to be more effective with marketing campaigns and fundraising

Knowledge of data structure is recommended, but not required. If you are comfortable creating spreadsheets, you should be able to learn to use Tableau.
- Preparing data: Tableau can take data from many sources, combine it together, and create associations between data.
- Connection to multiple data sources: Tableau can access data from sources such as Excel files, QuickBooks Online, Salesforce, Access, and SQL databases.
- Choice of visualization types: Depending on your selected data, you can display it on a map or as a bar chart, pie chart, heat map, area chart, and more.
- Dashboards: You can create dashboards that display several different visualizations at once.
- Stories: You can create a sheet that contains a sequence of worksheets and dashboards that work together to convey information. Users click story points in a navigator to proceed through the sequence.
- Filtering: You can set up filters on your visualizations so that you can choose to view parts of the data at a time. For example, you might want to view the data for a particular region and income level.
- Sharing: You can share Tableau workbooks with other Tableau Desktop users, as static images or PDF files, through the free Tableau Reader, or online with Tableau Public.
Tableau also offers free consultations to nonprofits through Tableau Service Corps.
