The solution will help charities, public and private foundation entities (which is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency) to formulate effective strategies to bolster fund raising.

The solution will help non-profit organizations to extend the functionality of creating related pages to a fundraiser by its supporters. This will improve awareness regarding a campaign through heightened social media integration. Also, the offering is integrated with Blackbaud eTapestry to facilitate easy reporting of results, noted Blackbaud.  

For individual fundraisers, the peer-to-peer fundraising solution helps to team up with bigger social good associations by allowing direct donations to the organization or designing and sharing their fundraising pages, among others, added Blackbaud.

The company’s solution includes fundraising, eMarketing, corporate social responsibility ("CSR"), advocacy, constituent relationship management (“CRM”), financial management, payment solutions, analytics and other such vertical-specific solutions.

According to Fortune Business Insights report, the worldwide cloud computing market is envisioned to hit $791.48 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 17.9% between 2021 and 2028.

Blackbaud is well positioned to gain from its diversified product portfolio, which comprises cloud software solutions that are infused with innovative technologies like machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI) as well as cognitive technology and predictive analytics.
