Empowering the Future: Harnessing AI and Data for Philanthropic Social Impact

June 18 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Join us on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, for the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers’ Spring Colloquium – A Conversation on the Social Sector. This year, we explore the impact of AI and data on philanthropy. Our panel discussion will bring together multiple perspectives to explore how AI can enhance problem-solving without losing human connections, how it affects equity, how philanthropy has engaged with AI for funding initiatives, and how AI has influenced Gen Z in philanthropy.

The Technology Association of Grantmakers’ new Executive Director, Jean Westrick, will moderate the panel discussion. Westrick has two decades of experience building communities by leveraging technology, innovation, and program strategy. Previously, Westrick was the Director of IT Strategy and Communications at The Chicago Community Trust, where she led change management efforts for the foundation’s $6M digital transformation initiative.

A post-panel facilitated conversation after lunch includes two separate discussions; AI Framework for Philanthropy by Technology Association of Grantmakers, and AI Guide for Nonprofits by Community Resource Exchange.

CNJG’s spring colloquium brings New Jersey grantmakers and nonprofits to hear recognized thought leaders discuss topics of critical interest to the future of the social sector. This year’s event will take place at the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. Following the discussion, guests are encouraged to continue “the conversation” with colleagues over lunch. We hope you will join us for what is sure to be an impactful and timely conversation.
