Explore how AI can empower non-profits, both from a governance standpoint and through innovative revenue models.

In a world awash in data, non-profits can’t afford to be left behind. We have a responsibility to our beneficiaries, our donors, and ourselves to leverage the power of AI to unlock new revenue streams and maximize impact. It’s not about replacing human connection, it’s about augmenting it, amplifying it, and reaching further than ever before.

In the realm of governance, Wenda will delve into crucial topics like transparency and accountability in AI implementation, ensuring fairness and mitigating algorithmic bias, safeguarding data privacy and security, and implementing robust risk management and oversight.

Beyond governance, Wenda will share some insights on how AI can be woven into effective business models and showcase practical examples. This includes harnessing AI for impactful fundraising, utilizing blockchain for micro-donations, exploring the potential of tokenized impact investing, and leveraging anonymised data to generate revenue while prioritising privacy.

  • Gain an understanding of governance principles when it comes to incorporating AI in not-for-profits.
  • Learn how AI can be woven into not-for-profits’ revenue streams and effective business models.
  • And gain the confidence that AI isn’t here to replace our passion or dedication. Instead, it empowers us to do what we do best.

Together, hand in hand with AI, we can build a world where ripples of compassion extend far beyond every dollar donated. Where every life touched becomes a testament to the boundless power of human empathy, amplified by the quiet magic of intelligent machines.
