A wave of new tools and technologies is opening up opportunities for fundraisers willing to embrace change. At the forefront of these innovations are AI-driven applications that can, and will, help arts organisations raise more while spending less.

Nonprofits have typically been slow to adopt new technologies, but the pandemic has revealed the need for innovation and lessons from the charitable sector show how early movers can easily use data to drive greater engagement.

This session explores the enormous potential of machine learning and AI to help arts organisations become more effective fundraisers. With case studies from early adopters and thought leaders in the charitable field, Chris will explore why machine learning outperforms traditional fundraising methods in everything from individual through to major giving and will discuss ways to get started. A must-see session for any fundraiser with an interest in using data to improve their results.

This seminar is ideal for:

Fundraising professionals, Executives, Artistic Directors, Board members and CEOs to develop their fundraising knowledge within the Australian arts and cultural sector.


This webinar took place on Thursday 2 December – 11.30am AEDT. The recording of the session is available to purchase below.
