St. Joseph's College New York
Adding a new peer-to-peer fundraising solution proves easy, effective for St. Joseph’s.
Once St. Joseph’s College New York adopted a new peer-to-peer fundraising solution that fully integrated with its donor database, staff saved time and resources, allowing them to focus more on donor interactions, which helped rally more than $64,000 during the college’s annual giving day.
With two distinct campuses and alumni, St. Joseph’s College New York relies on data-driven, donor-focused solutions for its annual giving and participant-based giving for alumni efforts.
After completing its first successful annual giving day in 2019 at its Brooklyn and Long Island campuses, St. Joseph’s knew it needed a peer-to-peer fundraising solution that could easily integrate with its existing donor database, Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge NXT®, to take its fundraising efforts to the next level. Blackbaud Peer-to-Peer Fundraising™, powered by JustGiving®, not only provided a much better back-end experience, it also has an intuitive user interface.
“By having our crowdfunding and fundraising and relationship management solutions integrated, we were able to eliminate many manual steps our advancement team previously had to perform,” said Flavio Bollag, executive director of development. “This saves them over 50% of time and resources, allowing more execution on events and giving them the ability to interact with donors in real time.”
Blackbaud’s integrated fundraising solutions empower institutions to better capture and leverage valuable peer-to-peer fundraising data. “Everyone was excited about Blackbaud Peer-to-Peer Fundraising, powered by JustGiving, and found it very easy to use,” explained Manager of Alumni Giving Kelly Cortes. “The implementation was quick and painless. We were very impressed with the process and how seamless the transition was for our users.”
