SmartSimple at TAG Member Roundtable recap: Exploring generative AI in philanthropy


TAG Member Roundtable

On April 6th, SmartSimple participated in a Technology Associations of Grantmakers (TAG) Member Roundtable to discuss the potential of generative AI in philanthropy. The focus of the roundtable was on cutting through the hype surrounding generative AI technologies, such as ChatGPT, to delve into their promise and pitfalls in streamlining and supporting philanthropy. Participants discussed various applications of generative AI in the field, as well as the potential ethical and practical concerns that may arise.

Our very own Greg Stanley, Director of Platform Solutions, answered questions and demoed our recently launched generative AI product, SmartSimple Cloud +AI. This product aims to revolutionize philanthropy through AI-assisted process management, reporting, and communication.

Key takeaways from the roundtable included a better understanding of the current landscape of generative AI in philanthropy and its potential to improve efficiency and decision-making in grantmaking processes. Participants also gained insights into the challenges that need to be addressed to ensure the ethical and responsible use of AI in the grantmaking space.
