Blackbaud and Charleston Battery Professional Soccer Team Bring Philanthropic Focus to All Home Matches in May
April 30, 2010, Press Release — Blackbaud continues its efforts to raise awareness in the local community as part of its ongoing philanthropy partnership with the Charleston Battery. This partnership incorporates a unique philanthropic theme to all home matches with a “nonprofit-of-the-match.” At soccer matches, the organization will be highlighted at halftime and will share its mission, raise awareness, and get the community involved.
On May 1, the Charleston Animal Society will be featured as the nonprofit-of-the-match. The Charleston Animal Society has sheltered over 150,000 animals over the last 100 years; they also perform surgeries, life saving procedures, and connect animals with new families seven days a week. As nonprofit-of-the-match, the Charleston Animal Society will be on hand to help families “find their soul pet,” registering volunteers, and raising awareness. The organization will also have a “pet drive” where it will be accepting donations including new pet toys, pet food, and cleaning supplies.
