The newest members of the Blackbaud Social Good Startup Program have arrived. Please join us in welcoming six companies to our July 2022 cohort!
As part of Blackbaud's commitment to expanding the Ecosystem of Good®, the Social Good Startup Program supports early-stage software companies focused on solving problems that matter to the social good community. Since the launch in 2019, 33 startups have completed the program and have collectively raised nearly $100 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. Participants have published multiple Blackbaud product integrations in the Blackbaud Marketplace, collaborated with other Blackbaud ISV partners to develop integrations, participated in Blackbaud events and engaged in targeted discovery with Blackbaud customers to get product feedback and implement changes to best suit customer needs.
"Launching our fifth cohort is a milestone worth celebrating." said Lizzie Schaffer, senior product manager for innovation and incubation, Blackbaud. "We’re so excited by the success we’ve seen with this program, from continued international reach of the startups, making connections across the Blackbaud portfolio to have startups work with our JustGiving®, YourCause® and EVERFI® teams, and growing the program’s presence in the Blackbaud Marketplace with a new 'collection' filter to enable sorting for apps from our startups. The startups have been valuable participants in our annual Blackbaud Developer's Conference and will have a significant role at bbcon again this year. We can’t wait to see all that our current cohort will accomplish.”
The July 2022 cohort participants are:
B Generous allows donors to give now, pay later. With our technology, nonprofits receive the donation from the donor upfront, but the donor can pay over time…without stressing their bank account. The best part is, the donor gets their full tax deduction right away, and pays no fees, interest, or hidden costs.
