Digest  ✺  Course  ✺  Posts  ✺  Ed3

Don't fear AI. Use AI to make an impact in the world. This course will help.

AI helps you live well and work smart. One industry poised to take advantage of AI is nonprofits. The AI for Nonprofits course can help. Reserve your seat.

Nonprofits are working to make an important impact in the world. With a little training on using AI, nonprofits can further their mission and help their teams get more done.

πŸ’ Specifically, AI helps nonprofits:

The sooner nonprofits learn to use AI to help with these tasks, the sooner they can grow and fulfill their missions.

This idea's backstory became apparent in one of my frequent sauna nights with Scott Holdman. πŸ§–

Now if you don't know "the other Scott," you are in for a treat. He has spent nearly two decades helping nonprofits launch, grow, and improve their operations. He even helped launch the longest-running one-day giving event in the country, which has raised over 165 million.

As we started talking about the impact of AI on the nonprofit world, we realized how essential these AI tools will become for organizations that want to further their impact, so we built a course together.

AI for Nonprofits - The Live Course You've Been Waiting For

I have spent a lifetime translating technology to help organizations succeed. Scott has spent a lifetime helping nonprofits succeed. That's why the "great Scotts" are excited to combine forces to teach a live course for nonprofits all about AI. It will be fun, collaborative, and action-focused! 🎯
