Blackbaud and TechSoup recently expanded their partnership to focus more on the technology needs of small nonprofits. It’s an exciting partnership that’s growing in four major ways.

1. Expanded Focus on Understanding Tech Needs of Smaller Nonprofits

One of the way’s we’re working together is by placing more focus on figuring out what’s important to nonprofits with annual revenues of less than $1 million dollars on their technology needs. 

You can help us by taking the short survey we’re running. The survey will remain open until April 25 and results will be available this summer.

2. Broadened Product Donation Program

In addition to focusing on learning more about the technology needs of smaller nonprofits we’ve also expanded our product donation program with TechSoup – a program that has helped countless nonprofits over the years.

“Blackbaud has been a longtime, valued supporter of TechSoup through our product donation program,” said Gayle Carpentier, TechSoup Global’s chief business development officer. “This expanded partnership will bring additional donations of nonprofit expertise and refurbished computers to provide nonprofits with the tools and knowledge they need to further their missions.”

3. Capacity Building and Education

TechSoup is sponsoring a webinar series, produced by Blackbaud, and co-presented by Blackbaud partner Constant Contact, entitled Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together. The series offers sessions on social media, marketing, communications and fundraising topics. Learn more at

4. Refurbished Computer Initiative

Blackbaud will also participate in TechSoup’s Refurbished Computer Initiative  (RCI) Program, donating hardware to nonprofits. The first nationwide refurbishing program geared strictly to nonprofits, RCI also provides an environmentally friendly alternative to used equipment disposal.

“We are proud to deepen our partnership with TechSoup Global, a leader in enabling nonprofits with technology,” said Mary Pat Donnellon, Blackbaud’s vice president of marketing. “Together, there is so much we can do for nonprofits – this is just a start.”
