The Christie Charity

Increases Productivity Using ImportOmatic

The Christie charity was founded to support the development of cancer prevention, treatment, research and education through the investment in projects which fall outwith the scope of NHS funding. The charity does this by making grants to The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, one of the largest cancer centres in Europe.


  • The Christie charity constantly receives new donor information from external sources, creating a challenge to ensure data is kept up-to-date and accurate.
  • The charity often receives updates in the form of spreadsheets containing new donors for events such as the Great Manchester Run.
  • This information would need to be imported into The Raiser’s Edge, a task which would involve four people taking up to four weeks to manually check and enter the data.


  • The Christie charity turned to staff at Blackbaud to find a solution to their importing problems.
  • ImportOmatic, an advanced importing plug-in for The Raiser’s Edge was recommended to The Christy charity, who began using it immediately.
  • ImportOmatic is specifically designed to import data into The Raiser’s Edge from any other system, and suited The Christy charity’s requirements perfectly
  • .


  • The Christie Charity now uses ImporOmatic on a regular basis and has significantly increased productivity as a result.
  • The four weeks it previously took to manually import participant data for the Great Manchester Run has now been reduced to just a half day of one person’s time.
  • The Christie Charity now has extra time and extra people to better support the work of the charity, ensuring they maximise their potential for raising funds.
