Artificial intelligence (AI) is in fact “intelligence” — through analyzing, composing, and inferring information via computer technology. Currently, one of the most popular and user-friendly platforms is Chat Generative Pre-Trained Transformer (ChatGPT) launched in November 2022.

ChatGPT can transform your fundraising efforts — helping you to raise additional funds more effectively while personalizing all forms of donor communication. Moreover, drafting materials such as grant proposals and social media posts will save you time, cut expenses, and allow you to focus on other nuanced components of fundraising.

 Utilizing AI for fundraising is a “cutting-edge” and dynamic new strategy that is only beginning to be tapped into by development professionals across the country. However, by attending this webinar, you will be ahead of the curve, walking away with all of the necessary skills and knowledge to transform how you fundraise from 2023 and into the future.

This webinar will include both a presentation and instructional tutorial on how to use ChatGPT to:
  • Write personalized fundraising letters that can be sent to donors via mail or email.
  • Generate scripts for fundraising videos that can be shared on social media or your nonprofit's website.
  • Create content for a fundraising campaign website, such as a landing page or donation page.
  • Generate social media posts that highlight your nonprofit's mission and encourage donations 
  • Develop an engaging chatbot that can answer donors' questions and guide them through the donation process.
  • Craft catchy slogans and taglines for your fundraising campaigns
  • Compose speeches for fundraising events or presentations
  • Facilitate acknowledgment notes for donors 
  • Draft and edit sections of Letters of Intent (LOI’s) and grant proposals
  • Develop content for fundraising brochures and other collateral materials
