The End of Traditional Fundraising Jobs and What to Do About It

For many years, there has been a paradigm shift in the nonprofit sector due to the pandemic making it harder to contact donors or ask them to support campaigns. Technology has grown exponentially, and generative artificial intelligence (AI) and how it can be used to automate fundraising processes has become more popular. This has caused many traditional fundraising jobs to become obsolete, leaving many fundraisers uncertain of their future. 


Fundraising.AI Collaborative Launches Framework for Responsible AI

The Fundraising.AI Collaborative recently launched a "Framework toward Responsible AI for Fundraising" in order to help organizations better understand the implications of using AI in fundraising. The framework provides guidance on how to use AI responsibly and ethically, while also taking into account the potential risks of using AI in fundraising. The framework was developed by a team of experts from the fields of fundraising, AI, and ethics, and is available for free on the Fundraising.AI website.


AI has the potential to revolutionize fundraising, but it is important to consider the potential risks of using AI in this context. The framework developed by the Fundraising.AI Collaborative is a great step forward in helping organizations understand the implications of using AI in fundraising, but it is not a substitute for thoughtful and ethical decision-making. Organizations should use the framework as a starting point, but should also consider the potential risks and benefits of using AI in their fundraising efforts.
