Leveraging Technology for Radical Connection

In the attention economy, connection is the most valuable currency. As fewer American households donate to charitable organizations annually and the demand for philanthropic dollars increases, modern nonprofits must dig deep to understand the forces at play and learn how to win the competition for connection.

Discover how Artificial Intelligence is revolutionizing modern business and societal norms, leading to significant shifts in consumer expectations. This evolution is particularly impactful in the charitable sector, setting the stage for groundbreaking changes that challenge conventional fundraising methodologies. The immediate future of philanthropy hinges on how swiftly and responsibly the nonprofit world embraces AI, a critical factor in ensuring the sector’s long-term sustainability.

This keynote will highlight the changing definition of generosity, shedding light on the unprecedented competition for connection that modern nonprofit organizations face. To thrive, nonprofits must develop a renewed appreciation for radical connection and learn to leverage technology once reserved for for-profit organizations. Using current data and analysis, attendees will understand the importance of measuring and prioritizing connection and discover which technologies can help them work smarter, not harder.

Join Nathan Chappell, a globally recognized authority on the intersection of AI and generosity, for a keynote presentation that explores the current state of AI in fundraising and its transformative potential for the charitable sector.
