Considerations For Using AI In Fundraising And Nonprofit Communications

Date: 24 April 2023

Location: Virtual Event

Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming our world in dramatic ways. It can significantly improve innovation and efficiencies in the workplace and augment the work traditionally reserved for human workers. However, there are also ethical, equitable and legal ramifications to consider when using AI. In the nonprofit sector, we’re seeing applications ranging from donor prospecting and segmentation to personalized messaging and fundraising optimization.

Join DER for a special program featuring a fireside chat with Boyden's Shaké Sulikyan, DER Board Member & Programs Chair, as moderator alongside Nathan Chappell, Senior Vice President at DonorSearch AI and co-author of The Generosity Crisis: The Case for Radical Connection to Solve Humanity’s Greatest Challenges, and Allison Fine, Activist, Futurist, and co-author of The Smart Non-Profit: Staying Human-Centered in an Automated World. There will also be a panel of nonprofit professionals discussing how they’re using AI in their fundraising and communications work. Whether you’re a nonprofit executive, fundraiser, communicator, or technologist, this program will provide valuable insights into the fast-evolving world of AI for nonprofits.**
