As nonprofits emerge from the shock of the pandemic and financial crisis, there’s an opportunity to reinvent philanthropy for a new era of activism. This is a moment to move away from transactional giving, churning through donors and asks, to a new model of making giving more relational, customizing, and engaging. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) well is the key ingredient to scaling this approach.
Based on research supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Allison Fine and Beth Kanter will outline the processes, products, and promise for scaling AI for generosity during this session. We hope it is the beginning of a broader conversation in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors of what’s next for giving.
In this highly interactive webinar, participants will:
-Understand the possible future scenarios for giving post-COVID and how to future-proof strategy
-Gain a basic understanding of how artificial intelligence can leverage giving and what capacity builders and strategy consultants need to know to harness it
-An overview of the challenges and ways to overcome
-Walk participants through some getting started steps
