**NEW COURSE** In this one day course, we will guide you through some of the popular AI tools and how you can use them to support your fundraising efforts.

Standard Content

AI tools provide a range of options for fundraisers, from text-based solutions that can craft social media posts to grant applications, image-based tools that can create the perfect image for your annual report, to video-based solutions that can remove the need for specialist skills. But as with many digital tools, the sheer volume of options available can feel overwhelming.

In this one day course, we will guide you through some of the popular AI tools and how you can use them to support your fundraising efforts.

There will be plenty of time for practice so you will finish the day knowing which tools will work for you and how you can use them going forward.
