The field of artificial intelligence is continuing to evolve, and with it, nonprofit organizations should stay abreast of the many growing ways in which AI can augment their fundraising, operational, and donor engagement experience. At Orr Group, we are actively and continuously working to research and qualify AI tools that would serve the nonprofit sector.

As a part of our shared learning, I recently participated in a panel session on “Unveiling the AI Toolkit for Fundraising: Live Demos and Success Stories”. The conversation was a productive exchange of experiences and insights that provided attendees with practical guidance and valuable lessons learned in the ever-evolving world of artificial intelligence. The session underscored three trends and themes we’re continuing to see in the field:  

  1. AI is rapidly transforming nonprofit fundraising. Understanding its capabilities and limitations is crucial for nonprofit organizations to effectively navigate this transformation.
  2. AI ethics and responsible AI practices are paramount. As AI becomes more pervasive, it is essential to ensure its ethical development and deployment to avoid potential biases and negative impacts.
  3. AI tools can enhance productivity and efficiency in fundraising. Various AI-powered tools are available to streamline tasks, automate processes, and improve decision-making which we list below.
