      eTapestry, Raiser’s Edge NXT and Financial Edge NXT Recognized as 2017 Top Rated Solutions

      We all know that buyers do significant research online prior to engaging with sales, and put a lot of stock in what their peers think. As part of our effort to ensure that Blackbaud solutions are represented well in this critical online research phase of the buyer’s journey, we know that it’s important to ensure we have great customer feedback for our solutions on technology review sites.

      We are pleased to share that eTapestry, Raiser’s Edge NXT and Financial Edge NXT have been awarded top solution recognition by TrustRadius, a trusted review site for business technology.

      TrustRadius awarded its 2017 Top Rated badges to products with the highest ratings in 79 of the most popular B2B software categories. Based solely on end-user data, these awards are unique in that they truly represent the authentic voice of the customer. Raiser’s Edge NXT and eTapestry were awarded a Top Rated Badge in the category of Nonprofit Constituent Relationship Management Software and Financial Edge NXT was awarded a Top Rated Badge in the very competitive category Accounting and Budget Software.

      “Every organization looking to streamline their financial processes should be on Financial Edge NXT. Financial Edge NXT streamlined our monthly reconciliation and drastically improved our reporting time and depth. Our part time CFO was able to do his job more effectively in less time which saved our organization major money.”

      “We were able to increase our number of donors giving by nearly 10% year over year. Our average gift size almost doubled in our most recent annual appeal. The ability to personalize communications donors greatly increased. Our IT staff has been able to focus on other areas of our organization as this product is in a fully hosted environment all updates and repairs are made by Blackbaud. The success we were able to recognize in the first year of having Raiser’s Edge NXT has paid for this product many times over. We are blessed to have Blackbaud as a partner in our continued success.”

      “I love eTapestry. It is the most user-friendly database I’ve ever used. Ever. Easiest format for establishing limited permissions for other staff and board members. Highly recommend. The standard and benchmark reports are logical and can be viewed or exported in any format. The live chat tech support is the best I’ve ever used, ever.”

      The Blackbaud Index: The Go-To Resource for Charitable and Online Giving Trends

      The Blackbaud Index reported that overall charitable giving to nonprofits increased 2.38 percent while online giving increased 11.3 percent for the three months ending January 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.


      The Blackbaud Index provides the most up-to-date information on charitable giving today. Tracking approximately $22 billion in US-based charitable giving, the Index is updated on the first of each month (or the next business day) and is based on a three-month moving average of year-over-year percent change. Featuring overall and online giving, the Index can be viewed by size and subsets of the nonprofit industry via an interactive online chart. The Index also features a fundraising benchmark calculator that allows users to easily chart their own results against the Index and historical data to provide a fuller view of charitable giving.
