Blackbaud is delighted to announce the newest members of the Social Good Startup Program in our January 2022 cohort. As part of our commitment to expanding the Ecosystem of Good®, Blackbaud’s Social Good Startup Program supports early-stage software companies focused on solving problems that matter to the social good community. Since launching the Social Good Startup Challenge in 2019, and the full program in 2020, Blackbaud has supported 27 startups that have collectively raised well over $45 million in funding.

Program participants receive curated access to Blackbaud resources, marketing opportunities and nondilutive grant funding, and Blackbaud works with startup founders to design a unique plan for each company that addresses their goals for growth. Past participants have published seven product integrations in the Blackbaud Marketplace, where Blackbaud customers can find and implement the unique solutions that are purpose-built for social good organizations. 

“We are thrilled to welcome six amazing companies to the January 2022 Cohort of the Social Good Startup Program,” said Lizzie Schaffer, senior program manager for innovation culture at Blackbaud. “Since the program’s inception, we’ve been honored to work with the strongest, most innovative startups in the world of social good software, and this cohort is no exception. These founders have built solutions for customers in all of the verticals that Blackbaud serves, and we can’t wait to see all the good we’ll do together in 2022.”
