Corporate Social Responsibility

Blackbaud’s vision is to power an ecosystem of good™ that builds a better world.

We don’t just power this ecosystem of good with our software; we’re active participants in it. We are committed to governing our business ethically, being a caring employer, contributing to causes and communities through corporate philanthropy, and pursuing sustainability.

It Starts with People

Our Corporate Citizenship starts with our people. At Blackbaud, we practice Human Social Responsibility, which means that we take our lead from our team-members around the world in our corporate philanthropy efforts.


Blackbaud employees volunteer over 100,000 hours annually

Empowering our people as agents of good.

We support the passion of our employees through cultivating a vibrant commitment to board leadership across our staff (with a quarter of employees serving on non-profit boards), and supporting and amplifying employee commitment to causes through corporate matching and time off for volunteering.






Contributing in the cities where we live and work.

We are proud to contribute to communities around the world where our 3,000+ employees work through our corporate grant programme. Last year, we supported amazing causes in our UK hubs of London and Glasgow with gifts to Football Beyond Borders, Give a Dog a Bone, Shelter from the Storm and several more organisations.

In the home city of our global headquarters, Charleston, South Carolina, we demonstrated our support with a $1m gift to the International African American Museum. 

We continue to contribute in every city where we work through employee-led grants and service projects.


Building a healthy future in the tech and social communities.

Leading uniquely at the intersection of technology and social good, it is a responsibility and privilege to serve these industry communities.
