The Vista School
In 2015, Vista’s leaders brought on the organization’s first full-time development director, Linda Whipple. Whipple and a development specialist manage all philanthropic activities that support three distinct social good organizations under the Vista umbrella. A partnership with Blackbaud powers the mighty two-person team and equips Whipple and her colleague with the tools they need for success.
“You’re only as good as your database,” Whipple said. “It makes sense that any organization that plans to embark on a formal development operation needs the backup of a database that is sophisticated enough to ensure that the development operation is going to be successful.”
