Corporate Social Responsibility

Blackbaud takes its Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) very seriously, and has a stringent policy in place to ensure that our impact on our staff, customers, society as a whole and the environment is a positive one.

Our founder, Tony Bakker, recognised the important role philanthropy and civic action play in healthy societies. So in the early days of the Company, he set efforts in motion that built a strong foundation for our corporate philanthropy and employee-led initiatives.

Today, we continue this proud tradition with a series of initiatives that enable both individual employees and the Company as a whole to make a real contribution to the society in which we live and operate.

 

AquAid

We at Blackbaud are aware that keeping our staff members hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in water coolers from AquAid – our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Our decision to install a water cooler from AquAid means that for each of the machines that we have, we have donated £20 per year per cooler to The Africa Trust. Through our contributions to The Africa Trust, an ‘Elephant Pump’ is being installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed, clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life of those who will have access to our well.

Our company’s name will be displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villages to our site in the near future.
 
AquAid, along with their sister company Perfect Printer Cartridges have to date donated over 6 Million Pounds to Charity.

Team Blackbaud

An employee-led volunteer group coordinates campaigns and volunteer activities in each of our locations. One member from seven localised groups serves on Team Blackbaud Global, which liaises with Corporate Relations & Philanthropy to present our employees’ ideas and feedback.

Volunteer for Vacation

We offer employees the ability to earn additional annual leave days as a reward for volunteering. This benefit gives individuals the flexibility to find a perfect match for their skills while encouraging such hands-on participation.
