      Associate-Centered CSR: Communities in Schools Charleston

      At Blackbaud, we believe in the power of individuals to be agents of social good. When people participate in their communities through volunteering, philanthropy, and civic engagement, good things happen. One of the most impactful ways of serving one’s community is through nonprofit board or committee work. Volunteering at this level provides an opportunity for individuals to lend their experience, expertise, and other personal or professional skills to an organization looking to make this world a better place. To help encourage this type of service volunteerism, we actively match colleagues’ skills, interests, and passions with organizations that could greatly benefit from their service.

      Amy Chase, one of Blackbaud’s VPs of professional services, recently joined the board of Communities in Schools Charleston (CIS) and is serving in the role of chair for its Development Committee. Amy’s work at Blackbaud taps into her various career experiences—working at nonprofit organizations, consulting, volunteering and project managing—as she manages multiple teams of business analysts, project managers, developers, architects and consultants who help create solutions that fuel nonprofit missions.

      Amy wanted to give back to an organization where she could fuse her professional experiences and skills together with her service to an organization assisting children and education. “Serving on the board of CIS has given me an opportunity to make an immediate impact by supporting its development efforts in private-, corporate-, foundation- and event-based giving while allowing me to also build relationships with other board members and staff that are equally committed and passionate about programs for improving school dropout rates in Charleston,” said Amy.

      “The hardest positions to fill on a nonprofit board are the development committee positions, says Jane Riley-Gambrell, executive director, Communities in Schools Charleston. “Executive and development directors often have to get creative to attract talent to this portion of the team so  when someone like Amy comes along, it is a nonprofit’s dream. In her short time on our board, she has hit the ground running, accepting the development chair role, providing our development director with much needed support and knowledge as well as helped the board learn more about necessary steps for long-term success within the organizations development department. We are beyond thrilled to have her talent and skills on our team.”

      Established in 1989 to implement dropout prevention programs, the mission of Communities in Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Now celebrating its 28th year, Communities in Schools Charleston has grown to serve nearly 10,000 students in 19 Charleston and Berkeley County Schools, using an evidenced-based comprehensive approach to bring community services to students, their families, and schools.

       

      Blackbaud and The Resource Alliance Announce Transformative Partnership to Support Global Social Good

      Charleston, S.C. (September 21, 2017) — Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, today announced a three-year transformative partnership with The Resource Alliance, a global leader in fundraiser events, education and networking, to develop content and collaboration opportunities that address the needs of the global social good community.

      “Cross-sector partnerships like the one we are forming with Blackbaud are redefining how social impact is enacted around the world,” said Kyla Shawyer, CEO of The Resource Alliance. “We are excited to have access to Blackbaud’s resources, tools, and people to help us leap forward in our commitment to transforming the social sector.”

      The Resource Alliance’s signature event, the International Fundraising Congress (IFC), has brought together tens of thousands of fundraisers and social impact leaders over the course of nearly 40 years. Blackbaud has already participated in the IFC Asia conference in Thailand earlier this year and will be an active participant in the upcoming IFC event in the Netherlands. These IFC events bring together nonprofit, NGO, and INGO leaders from across 60 countries representing more than $42 billion in revenue.

      “The Resource Alliance is a trusted partner in the global INGO and NGO community—it has a tremendous focus on quality educational programs and provides an inspiring platform for sharing best practices,” said Catherine LaCour, Blackbaud’s senior vice president of global marketing. “We are excited to collaborate with The Resource Alliance to help organizations enact their influence on social change. Together we know we can bring new technologies and techniques to this new day we all face in fundraising and mission building.”

      Blackbaud and The Resource Alliance were both created in 1981. For more than three decades, they have been helping create a network of knowledge and inspiration for the social good community, bringing key ideas, strategies and insights to fundraisers and organizations of all sizes, regions and missions. It seems fitting that these two organizations would come together for a transformative partnership to take the social good community into the future.

      Global Impact, Blackbaud, Council on Foundations, & Foundation Center Partner to Promote Global Goals Mapping: A Resource for Social Good Organizations

      Organizations can now map their gifts, employee volunteer hours and donations to the SDGs

      Charleston, S.C. (September 19, 2017) — In collaborative partnership, Global Impact, Blackbaud, Council on Foundations and Foundation Center developed a new resource to support organizations in aligning and tracking charitable giving to the United Nations (U.N.) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). More specifically, the creation of “Global Goals Mapping: A Resource for Social Good Organizations” supports goal 17, which is to revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

      Global Goals Mapping is a comprehensive resource list that maps giving and volunteerism using both the IRS National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) codes and the United Nations International Classification of Nonprofit Organizations (ICNPO) codes to classify the activity and programs of charities and connect them to the SDGs and related targets. It creates a shared alignment resource and common language to support all organizations across sectors in their efforts to map their contributions toward the SDGs.

      “Global Goals Mapping will enhance the impact of efforts across an organization by understanding the alignment of individual employee donations, volunteer hours and grants,” stated Scott Jackson, president and CEO of Global Impact. “By bringing four like-minded and highly respected organizations together in partnership, we can encourage, support, and drive strategic philanthropy for the social good community. Our hope is it will help organizations tell their complete story and illustrate their commitment to the SDGs.”

      • Global Impact, whose mission is to build partnerships and resources for the world’s most vulnerable people, will utilize the mapping and other tools to turn corporate giving and employee engagement data into more powerful success stories. Through this partnership, Global Impact will be able to tie contributions to impacts, align corporate responsibility efforts across departments, and help companies and their employees better understand how their contributions are connected to a powerful, collective global agenda.
      • Blackbaud, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, mapped the SDGs to the taxonomy of its Blackbaud Outcomes™ cloud solution. As the first solution to integrate this type of common outcomes measurement language, Blackbaud Outcomes empowers funders and nonprofits to truly understand the impact they are making.
      • Council on Foundations, an active philanthropic network and nonprofit leadership association of grantmaking foundations and corporations, will use the tool and information to provide the opportunity, leadership and tools needed by organizations to expand, enhance and sustain their ability to advance the common good.
      • Foundation Center, an innovative nonprofit and leading source of worldwide philanthropic data and research, will utilize Global Goals Mapping as part of a broader ecosystem of resources,  which includes SDGFunders.org, to help funders and grantees better understand the SDGs.

      The SDGs are a set of 17 interconnected global goals devoted to addressing hunger, poverty, health, equality, peace, justice and more that strive to “leave no one behind.” Adopted in 2015 by 193 countries, including the United States, they serve as a call to action to governments, the private sector, foundations, nonprofits and individual change agents to make significant improvements in life, on land and under water by 2030. The group’s goal is to provide a shareable resource for the entire social good community to utilize in aligning their grantmaking with the 17 goals and additional related targets.

      “We are proud of the collaborative work that went into creating this resource,” said Kevin McDearis, chief products officer at Blackbaud. “By incorporating the Global Goals taxonomy into our software, organizations can tell their success stories using statistics and results – all within a single frame of reference. With everyone speaking a common measurement language, we can begin to participate in a worldwide movement to lift up the collective social economy.”

      All four organizations will unite to promote Global Goals Mapping, and more broadly, the value of the SDGs as a framework through trainings, webinars and convenings. Based on their missions and expertise, each organization has been integrating the resource into its offerings with a goal of improving funders’, companies’ and other stakeholders’ financial and human capital investments toward achieving the SDGs for a sustainable future.

      With goals to improve constituent engagement, fundraising outcomes, and collaboration, the Georgia Tech Foundation (GTF) led an extensive CRM evaluation process for campus units including the Georgia Tech Office of Development, the Alexander-Tharpe Fund (A-T), and the Georgia Tech Alumni Association. GTF selected comprehensive yet customizable Blackbaud CRM™ for its leading analytics and proven professional services to help power its fundraising and alumni programs.

      “We chose to partner with Blackbaud because we trust that its comprehensive alumni and development CRM solution will help power the mission and future ambition of the Institute,” said Dwight Dozier, chief information officer at the Georgia Tech Foundation. “Blackbaud CRM stood out during the selection process because it provided a flexible cloud solution with proven results in development and alumni programs. Also important was selecting a technology partner that would provide a long-term vision and partnership for the university and Foundation.”

      Through the Blackbaud Success Assurance™ for Higher Education program, GTF completed a results-driven discovery assessment and review of Blackbaud CRM with a partial test run of its data.

      NEW! Thought Leadership Asset: Share of the American Wallet

      We’re excited to announce the release of our newest thought leadership asset, Share of the American Wallet: How Discretionary Spending Identifies the Best Donor Prospects.

      This report dives deep into data from the Census Bureau’s 2014 Consumer Expenditure Survey to determine which discretionary spending habits and characteristics are signals of propensity to make charitable gifts. It explores the key indicators of age, education, household composition, income, and household spending to determine which characteristics correlate with giving habits.

      Fundraisers need to know which donors are most likely to make a charitable gift in order to be as efficient and effective as possible in their outreach and stewardship efforts. By exposing characteristics that correlate with propensity to donate, this report helps readers acquire and retain the donors who have capacity to give and keep giving, allowing them to focus their efforts on the most likely candidates to bring meaningful value to their organization.

      Blackbaud Named to Fortune’s Change the World List

      Software Leader Recognized as Rising Star; One of 56 Leading Companies

      Charleston, S.C. (September 7, 2017) — Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, has been named to Fortune’s 2017 Change the World List, which recognizes companies that have positive impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy.

      Fortune’s annual Change the World list honored 56 companies around the world in 2017. Companies are evaluated on three main criteria: measurable contribution to societal impact, scale of business results and degree of innovation relative to the industry.

      Blackbaud was featured as one of just six “Rising Stars” with revenues under $1 billion.  Blackbaud works in over 60 countries and since its founding in 1981, 100 percent of its activities drive solutions to social problems delivering innovation to customers — all in support of global good.

      Associate-Centered CSR: Lowcountry Orphan Relief

      Last week, the Blackbaud Investor Relations Team—Mark Furlong, Steve Hufford, and Zach Hoogerland—spent the day volunteering at Lowcountry Orphan Relief (LOR), whose mission is to provide basic necessities for children in the Lowcountry who have been abandoned, abused, neglected, or are currently at-risk.

      The team helped LOR clean off the truck full of donations, sort children’s clothing, fill orders, and organize the distribution center. “In 2016, we filled over 2,600 orders for children with items such as clothing, school supplies, toiletries, books, socks, and shoes,” said Marissa Nash, director of development & community outreach at Lowcountry Orphan Relief. “With a small staff of only three full-time team members, we rely heavily on our volunteers. They are the lifeline to our success as an organization and help us provide comfort and support for more children than we ever could on our own.”

      Blackbaud’s fundamental belief that the world will be a better place when good takes over is integral to its corporate culture. Working at Blackbaud means working with people who share a passion for doing good. We encourage our employees to get to know our customers, whether that be through hands-on or skills-based volunteerism, to allow them to personally understand the unique challenges they face.

      To join Lowcountry Orphan Relief’s team of volunteers and experience the joy of making a difference in the life of a child who needs you, visit http://lowcountryorphanrelief.org/.

       

      The Rise of the Intelligent Machine

      As part of the launch of Trendwatch 2017, the American Alliance of Museums’ annual report that summarizes museum trends, we’re proud to partner with sector leaders to discuss the latest trends around artificial intelligence. Elizabeth Merritt, vice president of strategic foresight and founding director of the Center for the Future of Museums, joined Anthony Tomaino from Blackbaud’s product management team and Jeffrey Inscho from The Studio at Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh to explore how museums are experimenting with artificial intelligence and how it may shape museum practice in the future.

      Today, computer systems are beginning to be able to do things we used to believe required human thought—dealing with uncertainty, learning from experience, making predictions, interpreting language and more. So you’ve likely heard of AI—technology’s ability to process, decipher and “learn” from information. While many technology companies are talking about AI, only Blackbaud is taking a comprehensive approach to intelligence that’s completely optimized for social good by combining big data, artificial intelligence, analytics and expertise to help customers build a better world.

      The panelists discuss how AI can offer affordable expertise, saving money and man hours, as well as how AI can help museums manage the real, practical problem of amassing huge data sets of information about their collections. “There’s no practical way to manage, sort and mine data of this kind without AI,” said Merritt. “So our ability to make sense of what we are actually collecting may depend on these types of applications.”

      Watch Blackbaud’s “The Rise of the Intelligent Machine” on demand webcast to learn answers to questions like — What can this technology do for a museum? How can it make museums and their collections more accessible and useful to the public? Could AI be trained to authenticate art? Or could AI programs answer visitor questions like “Where are the paintings that will make me smile?”
