More than Money: Data, fundraising and your organisation
Provider: Perpetual with Stanford University
Date: Wed 15 September 2021 – event completed recording available
Topics: With many traditional funding sources under pressure, digital fundraising has never been more important for NFPs. But while it’s a major revenue opportunity, digital fundraising comes with its challenges. Who owns the data you generate when fundraising online? What risks does it create for your organisation? What can go wrong – and what does that mean for you and your donors?
Perpetual’s latest webinar answers these questions. Developed and presented by Lucy Bernholz from Stanford University’s Centre on Philanthropy and Civil Society (PACS), the session looks at:
- Digital hygiene – how to keep your data safe
- Third-party vendors and “data lock-in”
- AI – the promise, the pitfalls – and how to “make sure the robots don’t kill us.”
This webinar was recorded on 15 September 2021, it features polls, insightful questions from a live Australian audience and resources you can share throughout your organisation.
