      Blackbaud Debuts New Philanthropic Index Featuring Comparative Fundraising Data Across U.S. Health Systems

      Provides benchmark for fundraising effectiveness to help healthcare
      organizations inform future fundraising strategies

      Charleston, S.C. (April 19, 2018) – Blackbaud, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, today announced a new Healthcare Philanthropic Index, featuring a first of its kind look at comparative data and fundraising trends across US- based healthcare institutions.

      The Blackbaud Healthcare Philanthropic Index leverages findings from Guidestar, HIMSS Analytics, the U.S. Census and Blackbaud, making it the largest analysis of community wealth, philanthropic giving and revenue for healthcare institutions. The Index includes overall giving to healthcare organizations and cohort development by community wealth and bed size, representing 7,000 organizations and over $9.4 billion in fundraising revenue.

      Key findings from Blackbaud’s Healthcare Philanthropic Index include:

      • Community wealth varied widely; in some cases, the wealth in communities was four times that of others, yet the average funds raised per bed were the same
      • Where there were higher funds raised per bed, it was due to apparent strategic initiatives implemented by healthcare institutions
      • Average donation sizes did not vary much from community to community or within bed size ranges

      “The U.S. healthcare ecosystem has been under tremendous pressure and change in the last several years, and philanthropy has proved to be a steady revenue stream that helps health systems diversify income and secure needed resources beyond what the health system can fund from clinical billing,” said Russ Cobb, president and general manager of Blackbaud Healthcare Solutions. “Since most healthcare fundraising is local, it is vitally important that healthcare organizations understand how they perform relative to peer institutions and then use that information to gain needed resources that will further enable them to contribute to the institution’s bottom line. Ultimately, the work of supporting philanthropic institutions builds healthier more sustainable communities.”

      To uncover wealth insight, learn the impact of a community’s wealth or download the Blackbaud Healthcare Analytics Toolkit, visit www.blackbaud.com/healthcarephilanthropicindex. Join the 2:00 p.m. ET April 26 webinar to learn more about the Blackbaud Healthcare Philanthropic Index from Blackbaud Data Scientist Debra Kloth and Philanthropic Consultant June Bradham, CFRE.

      NEW! Guidebook to Becoming a Lean Organization

      For decades, manufacturing companies have employed lean principles to decrease waste and increase efficiency and quality. Although Toyota is often credited as the birthplace of the lean movement, lean thinking began with the Ford Motor Company during the early days of mass production over one hundred years ago. Fast forward to today, and you’ll find a diverse array of organizations, from manufacturing to governmental agencies to nonprofits, are all implementing lean principles.

      Public and social sector organizations alike are under ever-increasing pressure to do more with limited resources. Today’s tough funding and regulatory environment is driving the need for innovative approaches that can reduce overhead and increase service to our communities and funders. You may be surprised to learn that lean has found a whole new life in governmental entities, nonprofits, and other service enterprises, where it has been successfully implemented for more than a decade.

      Blackbaud’s new Guidebook to Becoming a Lean Organization, you’ll discover how lean thinking can help you reduce waste, improve the efficacy of your program delivery, and empower employees through innovation. You’ll also learn to avoid the top reasons that lean initiatives fail.

       

      Blackbaud Announces Membership in CECP: The CEO Force for Good

      Blackbaud is pleased to announce it is now a member of CECP, a CEO-led coalition that believes a company’s social strategy — how it engages with key stakeholders including employees, communities, investors and customers —determines company success.

      “As a company on the leading edge of developing innovative solutions for maximum impact in the social good space, Blackbaud is a powerful example of business levering its core strengths to be a ‘Force for Good,’” said Daryl Brewster, CEO, CECP. “CECP is proud to welcome Blackbaud to its coalition of CEOs committed to finding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.”

      Blackbaud’s core mission is to provide cutting-edge technology that enables social good organizations to have a greater impact and collaborates with leading companies like fellow CECP member Microsoft to accomplish this. In addition to now joining CECP, Blackbaud has demonstrated its commitment to building a better world through the company’s role as a Founding Partner of the #GivingTuesday movement and as a member of organizations such as the Giving Institute and Shared Value Initiative. At the World Economic Forum in 2017, Blackbaud collaborated with the Gates Foundation, Social Progress Imperative and UN Foundation to convene hundreds of leaders to accelerate cross-sector collaboration toward advancing social impact.

      We also deeply believe in giving back through our own corporate social responsibility programs. In 2018, Blackbaud is once again participating in the Fortune/U.S. Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership, which matches emerging women leaders from all over the world with members of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Leaders for a four-week-long program. Blackbaud runs a robust employee volunteering program in which 86% of employees worldwide participate – far above the 31% corporate volunteer average. And we give back to our communities through programs such as Camp Blackbaud, which engages underserved youth in STEM education and our Community Matters grant program run by local employee committees, which engages our colleagues in each Blackbaud location to learn about the good work organizations in their communities are doing and teaches them what it means to be grantmakers.

      “It’s incredibly important to me that Blackbaud’s business model includes both developing best-in-class technology solutions and services to advance the social economy and demonstrating its commitment to giving back as a company,” said Mike Gianoni, president & CEO of Blackbaud. “I am honored to join this coalition of fellow CEOs working to create a better world through business, and look forward to taking advantage of the strategic counsel and expertise that CECP can provide to push us even further.”

      Blackbaud Institute’s New Report Reveals Untapped Value of New Donors

      New resource provides data-backed insights on the latest household giving trends,
      as well as proven fundraising strategies to retain increasingly valuable donors in the changing landscape 

      Charleston, S.C. (April 10, 2018) — Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, today announced the availability of a new report, “Vital Signs Part 2: The Undeveloped Value of New Donors,” featuring research-backed insight expanding upon donor behavior and specific retention strategies that map to the current giving landscape. This latest report from the Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact™ is a follow-up to its Vital Signs Part 1 study, which looked at giving between 2010 and 2015 and showed how these challenges impacted the work of fundraisers.

      “Part 1 of the Blackbaud Institute’s Vital Signs report showed a sector that has both rebounded from and struggled with the immense technological, economic, and demographic disruption that has shaped the world since the Great Recession,” said Mike Geiger, author of the report’s foreword and president and CEO of Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). “Now, in Vital Signs Part 2, these trends are revisited to provide deeper insight into the ways fundraisers can be more successful in this evolving donor landscape. This newest report doesn’t just give us new figures and data—it also provides ideas, steps, and perspective on how to address and increase our retention figures.”

      The Blackbaud Institute’s Vital Signs Part 1 showed that while fewer households are giving, those who are giving are more valuable than ever. As such, today, organizations need to significantly focus their efforts to retain these donors. Vital Signs Part 2 expands upon these findings to learn more about:

      • How the rise of civic engagement in 2017 affected the negative trends uncovered in Vital Signs Part 1; with the decline in new donor households appearing to stabilize in 2016 and, in 2017, the number of households adding organizations to their giving portfolio increasing for the first time since 2010
      • What happens when donor households add one or more organizations to its giving portfolio, and whether they continue to support their regular charities
      • What specific retention strategies organizations can implement to not only acquire new donors but retain them more effectively

      “While the number of households giving has declined, the value of their giving has increased at a better rate than inflation; and our most recent data shows that this decline may have stopped and could even be reversing,” said Chuck Longfield, Blackbaud’s chief scientist and senior advisor to the Blackbaud Institute. “We’ve seen how greater social and political trends can affect our donor bases, with donor trends mirroring the economy. As we look ahead to an even more uncertain landscape, there has never been a better time to double down on stewardship, embrace our donors, and focus on acquisition.”

      Blackbaud Announces the Next Generation of Cloud Grantmaking

      Early adopters give Blackbaud’s newest grantmaking solution high marks for intuitive design and
      configurable workflows that make it easy to quickly find data and act

      Charleston, S.C. (April 5, 2018) – Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB), the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good, today announced its next generation cloud offering for grantmaking.

      Blackbaud Grantmaking™, the company’s newest and most comprehensive grants management solution, evolves the experience previously available with its original grantmaking solution, GIFTS Online™ to take full advantage of the rapid innovation, modern user experience, and enhanced capabilities made possible by its modern, open cloud platform, Blackbaud SKY®.

      Blackbaud Grantmaking helps organizations manage modern grantmaking configured to the unique practices and capabilities of each grants cycle, ultimately allowing foundations, corporations and nonprofits to more effectively manage constituent engagement, financial reporting, and other critical processes—all while making the collaboration between grantors and grantees more effective.

      Customers who participated in the early adopter program gave Blackbaud Grantmaking rave reviews for usability, flexibility and performance.

      • “It’s been very exciting for our organization to be a part of the Blackbaud Grantmaking early access program,” said Melenie Magnotta, chief operating officer of the Aetna Foundation. “The new solution is very intuitive and will help us approve grants more quickly and improve our collaboration with our grantees, ultimately helping us have a bigger impact.”
      • “We are pleased with the innovation Blackbaud continues to release in its cloud solutions, such as Blackbaud Grantmaking,” said Deena Lauver Scotti, director of grants management at the Missouri Foundation for Health. “One of the reasons our organization is now adopting its cloud accounting solution, Financial Edge NXT™, is because it easily integrates with Blackbaud Grantmaking and we will be able to seamlessly navigate between the two solutions.”
      • “We are really excited by the updated design in Blackbaud Grantmaking, and we’re eager to have the opportunity to help guide the future of this solution by participating in the early access program,” said Salvo La Rosa, VP, research & development, Children’s Tumor Foundation. “Since we use the Google suite of products, being able to use the Chrome browser with the new Blackbaud Grantmaking platform will allow us to work more seamlessly.”

      With configurable workflows that combine the power of data with simplified views and access, every Blackbaud Grantmaking user is empowered to work smarter.

      “In today’s shifting grantmaking landscape, the demand for better collaboration, increased transparency, enhanced data and analytics, especially around impact and intuitive workflow, continues to grow,” said Kevin McDearis, Blackbaud’s chief products officer. “Blackbaud is driving a stronger social economy, supporting over 40,000 organizations with the most progressive technology solutions in the industry. We are the only grantmaking technology provider that offers organizations a comprehensive suite of purpose-built solutions, connected data from across the social good community, and a configurable grantmaking solution that increase grant effectiveness.”
