Fundraising in AI Forum (9:00 am - 5:00 pm)
The Nonprofit A.I. Forum is designed to give nonprofit leaders access to the latest technology and reposition the nonprofit sector from being under-served to first in line to access experts and learn the tactics that can give the third sector the edge. We have scoured the globe for the best experts, the leaders in A.I. adoption, and brought them together for an immersive digital experience.

Framed from the outset on the ethics and digital challenges faced by nonprofits, Acadia University and Fundmetric bring together leaders in planned giving, major gifts, donor retention, donor experience, and A.I. adoption experts for an unforgettable experience. All of these sessions are transcended by an emphasis on diversity and inclusion and how this is a tenant of anti-bias both for machine learning and beyond. We'll be discussing many topics during the forum, here are few examples:


Digital Transformation and Opportunities for AI

Learn about the latest in digital transformation and where the opportunities for AI exist for the nonprofit sector.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Nonprofit AI

Why efforts in AI development and implementation need to include diverse groups.


The Latest in AI Research and Practical Application

Hear from academics and nonprofit industry leaders alike as they present their latest papers, projects, and practical experience.
