We also use Blackbaud's Volunteer and Employee Giving Solutions. Managing one vendor relationship for all our social responsibility programming has its benefits and being able to see data across our various programs helps us continue to improve our impact and operations.

Our foundation is a public charity and not only awards grants, but also receives donations and uses a Blackbaud product, eTapestry, to manage donor information. It would be great if Blackbaud Grantmaking and eTapestry could be integrated. Currently, we run them separately and have to manually reconcile information.

We have not been able to benefit from this, as we only use Blackbaud Grantmaking. In the future, we may be able to evaluate the effectiveness of other Blackbaud products, such as Outcomes and Angelpoints.

Initially our grant process was a paper process with multiple grant application types and Blackbaud Grantmaking allowed us to input the paper version of the application into an online system as well as create online applications for ease-of-use for grantees and allowed us to track categories providing the statistical information.

While I appreciate all the incredible work that Blackbaud does in the area of philanthropy, I regret that I do not have the time to make use of all the capabilities and networks which it offers for improvement. I do appreciate receiving the very regular communications with Blackbaud regarding webinars and support circles and environment. Although I haven't had the opportunity to attend any of the online best-practice and social good updates - I certainly hope to use these features in the near future. The contact friendly reminders are great!

We have not yet benefited from this but we don't use Blackbaud Grantmaking to its full capacity yet. As we move into accepting online proposals and reporting, and tracking outcomes in the system, I think we would see more benefit from Blackbaud's collaboration with organizations that receive grants. I'd also like to eventually integrate with our accounting system.

We use Blueprint and online applications as of now. We have received quotes for other products but the foundation decided at that time not to move forward with those. Maybe in the near future when we expand we will re-evaluate certain Blackbaud products and utilize them. I do think we could utilize some of Blackbaud's other products, but the foundation would need to sit down and map out how we would utilize it and how it would benefit the organization.

Well, we use Blueprint and the online applications and reporting. I think the cost for additional users and additional Blackbaud solutions may be cost prohibitive. We have received quotes for additional products that we will not consider at this time.

Other than Razor's Edge and Angel Points (which is a horrible product), I have no idea what else Blackbaud offers. Historically, our account rep, when it was Microedge, reached out to us maybe once a year. Since becoming Blackbaud, it was almost two years before anyone contacted us to see how things were going.

We used to have Raiser’s Edge but it was being underutilized so we discontinued it. We anticipate there could be some benefits to having both, especially for community foundations that practice fundraising as well as grantmaking.

We haven't used all that Blackbaud has to offer because we are very small and private, so we only use Blackbaud Grantmaking to track our grants and create reports and manage our clients.
