Gravyty, the first and leading provider of AI-enabled fundraising software, announced Gravyty Connect, an artificial intelligence (AI) solution that breaks the silos of fundraising at nonprofit organizations, faith communities, and higher education institutions. Gravyty Connect employs AI to coordinate fundraising efforts beyond development and advancement offices by connecting an organization’s non-fundraising leaders with donors through Gravyty’s revolutionary First Draft technology.
“As former frontline fundraisers, we know that major gifts are more likely to be secured when a donor has the opportunity to develop multiple relationships at an organization,” said Adam Martel, co-founder and CEO, Gravyty. “With the release of Gravyty Connect, we’re reimagining the traditional fundraising experience by extending an organization’s ability to support the cultivation of relationships between donors and an organization’s leadership. This solution builds a true culture of philanthropy across the organization and is the first technology that tackles this need head-on.”
Gravyty Connect is the newest solution within Gravyty’s AI-suite of fundraising tools. Gravyty Connect allows leaders who aren’t in traditional fundraising roles, such as deans, board members, pastors, department heads, program managers, athletic directors, provosts, and more to seamlessly contribute to an organization’s overall fundraising efforts.
“We can’t operate on the same tired model of only asking the Development office to act as the sole fundraising silo anymore,” said Chris Tobin, Executive Vice President, Institutional Advancement and Executive Director, College of Charleston Foundation. “Gravyty has already helped College of Charleston realize greater fundraiser efficiency. But what I’m most excited about is the opportunity to use AI to sharpen our strategic thinking and better integrate the practice of advancement with our executive leaders, deans, Board volunteers, and other campus partners.”
“The generosity of our donors is critical to the success of the student-athlete experience at Babson and fundraising has always been part of my role as Director of Athletics,” said Mike Lynch, Senior Director of Athletics and Athletic Advancement, Babson College. “This is the first time I’ve seen a tool that aligns with these responsibilities for the likes of athletic directors, deans, and more. Gravyty allows me to build relationships with donors so I can connect students with the resources they need.”
