In addition to a dedicated corporate team, a grassroots employee-led volunteer core named Team Blackbaud has been in existence since 1998. The Team, which conducts quarterly philanthropic campaigns, was
recently expanded globally to include all of Blackbaud’s worldwide offices, including a special group for remote employees.
“It is so refreshing to know that I am not only on the same page with my colleagues in the office when it comes to partnering with nonprofits for their technology needs, but also in making a difference personally by
working together on our quarterly initiatives and giving back to the community,” said Jennifer Conway, Blackbaud’s customer care lead and chairperson of Team Blackbaud Charleston. “I am so proud to know so
many active Blackbaud employees who give their time and energy to help so many wonderful causes.”
One of the company’s most popular and innovative programs is Volunteer for Vacation, which allows employees to earn additional vacation days by volunteering with local nonprofits. Additionally, many employees participate in United Way’s Day of Caring, taking a company-sponsored day off of work to volunteer with a nonprofit and make a difference in the community.
