Taking Action

Blackbaud doesn’t just power the Ecosystem of Good®—we’re an active part of it. Here are a few things we’ve been doing recently to help build a better world.

Investing in Tech Innovation for Social Good

Blackbaud’s Social Good Startup Program is a year-long accelerator designed to support early-stage software companies dedicated to solving problems that matter to the social good community. Since the program’s 2019 launch, Blackbaud has supported 33 startups, emphasizing working with founders from traditionally underrepresented groups.

In 2021, the cohort raised more than $45 million, and in January 2022, we welcomed six new startups into the program.

Growing Our Impact on the Social Good Community

In January 2022, Blackbaud announced the acquisition of EVERFI, a global social impact technology leader that enables private, public, and social sector organizations to respond to some of today’s most pressing challenges through education and activating community engagement at scale, delivered as a service.

Learn how Blackbaud and EVERFI are strengthening the technology and data-driven impact space, benefiting companies committed to social impact and driving meaningful outcomes that build a better world.

Being Part of the Climate Change Solution

We believe we have a responsibility to act against climate change. We do this in how we operate and through our philanthropy, such as our multi-year, six-figure support for Project Drawdown’s climate education efforts to stop global warming and decrease greenhouse gases.

Most recently, Blackbaud achieved carbon neutrality across our business operations and data centers.
