Los Angeles, CA: Funraise, the nonprofit sector’s premier fundraising platform serving thousands of nonprofit organizations, announces an acceleration of in-platform data intelligence products backed by AI, including AI forecasting, data explanations, and natural language queries. 

This effort to usher nonprofit organizations into the new era of AI will allow nonprofits to compete for the same dollars previously secured by for-profit companies that boast massive AI and data intelligence tools. Funraise’s team is excited to lead this turning point in nonprofit technology.

Funraise CTO and Co-founder Jason Swenski notes, "Nonprofits play a critical role in society, so it's essential that they have access to technology that maximizes their impact. By leading the way to a future of AI-backed data intelligence, Funraise empowers organizations to make world-changing difference."

The ability to sustain and increase revenue is currently a critical concern for nonprofits, with donor retention rates falling below 50% in 2022 (AFP). New AI and data intelligence solutions will support the sector in overcoming challenges they face in navigating complex donor retention initiatives and enable organizations to take strategic actions that result in increased efficiency, revenue, retention, and, ultimately impact.

Justin Wheeler, Funraise CEO and Co-founder, says, “Funraise has seen firsthand how the power of data intelligence can sustain and accelerate life-changing impact. We’re excited to increase the accessibility of this technology because we know nonprofits are poised to launch into a future where actionable insights will increase impact in a big way.”

Backing this initiative is Funraise’s continued partnership with Sisense, the leader in AI-driven analytics that empowers enterprises to seamlessly transform their data into a competitive edge. Because Funraise exclusively serves the nonprofit sector, this partnership provides Sisense with greatly increased impact in the social good sector.

Ayala Michelson, Chief Products and Technology Officer and GM Israel at Sisense, says, "Sisense is thrilled to bring cutting-edge data intelligence tools to the nonprofit sector alongside Funraise. By empowering organizations with the insights they need to make informed decisions, we can help maximize the impact of their mission-driven work."
