Nucleus Data Analytics

Deep experience with association technology

the origin of nucleus

The first data analytics platform built specifically for associations and nonprofits

A few years ago, our clients started expressing a new and urgent request: “Help us with our data!”

What initially began as one-off ad hoc reporting projects quickly evolved. This new growth fueled an interest among our team, and we began market research. The results overwhelmingly supported our suspicions: associations seriously lack the tools and skillsets to access, report, and analyze their data.

And so Nucleus was born, initially through the long hours and fierce determination of Tim Ward and Andrew Huling. It has since become the honored recipient of private investment and is supported by an entire team of product engineers, user experience designers, client success, sales, and product marketers.

Nucleus exists to bring actionable data to associations and nonprofits at every level, in every department, for every important decision.
