“AI is going to revolutionize the workplace!”

We’re sure you read phrases like this throughout 2023 – we certainly did!

By now, we’ve all heard about how Artificial Intelligence is going to change the world.

Yet do you find yourself asking: Where do I even start using AI for my nonprofit? If so, you’re not alone! We’ve been asked this question SO many times over the last year!

And the answer is: the evolving landscape of technology offers unprecedented opportunities for nonprofits to optimize operations, engage supporters, and drive impact.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) stands at the forefront and has the potential to revolutionize how nonprofits operate and further their missions. As we step into 2024, it’s an important time for nonprofit leaders to understand the transformative power of AI and how it can be harnessed to propel their organizations’ missions forward!

Why Does AI Matter for Nonprofits?

AI is not merely a buzzword – it’s a powerful tool that can tailor volunteer, donor, and supporter communications, boost efficiency, and guide data-driven decision-making. As a Nonprofit Leader, you’re wearing so many different hats all the time. By effectively using AI, you (and your team) can free up time to handle tasks that demand the human touch!

AI in Fundraising: Maximizing Potential

AI can help nonprofits determine the ‘who, when, how much, and what’ for fundraising campaigns by using your current data to make predictions about the future. AI can analyze your donor data to inform strategies, while automations (like automatic emails) can streamline essential processes like sending thank you notes. Imagine how much time you could save if you didn’t have to manually send a thank you email each time you received a donation!

AI in Marketing: Amplifying Outreach

There are so many AI tools out there to help boost your nonprofit’s marketing! From programs like ChatGPT, which helps with content creation including social media posts and emails, to OpenAi which creates AI images, to Vidya.io that helps with creating captions and video clips – there are tools out there to help with every aspect of your marketing! Leveraging AI for these tasks can significantly boost your nonprofit’s outreach and audience engagement.

Other Time-Saving AI Applications

Have you tried the AI features on Zoom or used a Zoom add-on application like Fathom? Utilizing AI-powered notetakers like these during meetings is just one additional way that AI can be a game-changer for your nonprofit, capturing crucial information and discussions without manual effort.

AI can help your nonprofit in SO many other ways beyond what we’ve mentioned here! New tools are coming on the market every day that are helping boost productivity in ways that you’ve thought about for your nonprofit – and probably some you haven’t.

Yet as we begin to embrace AI with our nonprofits, there are many things to consider and questions to ask ourselves:

💫 How can we create an AI usage policy that puts people first?

💫 What steps should we take to ensure the accuracy and reliability of AI-generated information?

💫 How can we avoid biases in AI applications and ensure fair and unbiased outcomes in decision-making processes?

These are the same questions we ask ourselves every day!

At first, Brad and I were hesitant about AI. Yet we’ve come to realize that Artificial Intelligence is here to stay, and have been experimenting and learning about how AI can be a game-changer for nonprofits, offering unprecedented opportunities for growth and impact. We’d love to share what we’ve learned with you!
