Fueling Social

Across the nonprofit and education sectors, at companies committed to social responsibility, and through the efforts of individual change makers, Blackbaud’s software enables users to transform their communities and the world. Here’s how they’re taking action.

Individual Change Makers

Individual change agents are at the core of any cause or movement—they are the donors, the volunteers, and the advocates. JustGiving, Blackbaud’s social fundraising platform, enabled these change agents to unleash amazing generosity in 2023:

  • 1 million+ fundraising pages created on JustGiving
  • 22,100 nonprofit organizations maximizing their impact through donations on JustGiving
  • 1,600 organizations added to the platform and an additional $2 million processed in 2023 vs. 2022



Education is a powerful vehicle for social impact. Schools and universities are accelerating their impact with Blackbaud’s essential solutions for fundraising, tuition, scholarship management, education management, and critical skills education.

Key 2023 stats:

  • 3.2 million students participated in critical skills education through EVERFI from Blackbaud
  • 8.8 million hours of learning for K–12 students across the globe
  • 98% of teachers plan on using an EVERFI course again next year


Nonprofits and Charities

Nonprofits grow revenue and work more efficiently with purpose-built software. Our software helps organizations drive impact more effectively and exceed changing stakeholder expectations.

Key 2023 stats:

  • Organizations using Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge NXT® and analytics saw 15% increase in total dollars raised within just 2 years – over a period when total fundraising across the nonprofit sector remained relatively flat *
  • 27% increase in total dollar amount from major gifts in two years for organizations using Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge NXT® and analytics

Purpose-Driven Companies

As consumers, employees, and investors increasingly expect companies to be socially responsible, companies are placing greater emphasis on showing the impact of their social responsibility programs. That’s why top socially responsible companies partner with Blackbaud to manage their employee giving and volunteering, grants programs, and workplace training.

Key 2023 stats:

  • 65% increase in employee volunteer hours recorded in our CSRconnect® platform
  • $1.13 billion processed in employee donations and grants on YourCause® from Blackbaud® software
  • 1,286 companies use EVERFI® from Blackbaud® courses to further workplace culture and compliance


Our customers and their supporters around the globe are changing the world and improving communities every day. We’re honored to provide the essential software to help enable that impact.
