Unlike any release before it, every new feature in The Raiser’s Edge 7.93 came from what our products team heard in Idea Bank and Discovery groups. We asked what changes and added functionality you need in The Raiser's Edge and have delivered awesome improvements to security and clean data management, user-friendly exports, tools for batch organization, and more. Take a deep dive into all the new features in The Raiser’s Edge 7.93 by taking the 7.93 Feature Walkthrough.

Blackbaud Credit Card Updater

Never miss a recurring gift with automatically updated credit card information!

Event Mobile App and MobilePay

Streamline your event experience and simplify your fundraising with on-the-spot payments and check-ins at events!

Fuzzy birth dates for donor records

Creating intimacy with your donors is important. Now, you can query donors’ birthdays without needing the birth year. All you need is the month and day to create a query and send out birthday cards to your top donors.

Better at managing duplicates

With the Duplicate Constituent Management tool, you can now review and remove all duplicates in one central place. Maintaining clean, accurate data is easier than ever!

User-generated batch category labels

Now you'll have the ability to create batch category labels that make sense, then drag-and-drop batches from your list into appropriate categories to keep them — and you — more organized.

Added security

With 7.93, database administrators have more control over what they allow users to do. You can now choose whether other users can edit constituent ID’s and have access to the Web Services module.

Additional Features and Functionality


When you add a new address to a constituent record, a prompt now appears to allow you to copy phone and email information from the existing preferred address to the new address, making it easier to update records.

And 7.93 allows for birthdays to be “fuzzy” with just the month and date (no year) in the date of birth fields. So you can easily query all birthdays in a month to send your constituents cards.


You can rename export column headings to make them more user-friendly and accurate. For example, if you are exporting multiple Gift Amount fields, but each has different criteria, you can create descriptive column headers to differentiate them in the output. This feature helps eliminate manual editing of column headers before you share a report and smooths integration into other systems.


To help further personalize letters to donors, the Last Name, First Gift Date, First Gift Amount, and Last Gift Date fields have all been added to Donor Acknowledgement Letters and Quick Letters.


In the results of a query list, primary addressee and constituent ID information have been added as columns you can display on the output grid . These columns are also sortable.

SQL Server Compatibility

The Raiser's Edge 7.93 is now compatible with Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012, Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2008.
