- The Huffington Post – Holiday Giving: Ticking the Box or Making an Impact? – The season of giving is in full swing. The signs are all around us – store display windows, merchandise sales, our social media feeds, our mailboxes filled with both cards and catalogs, and of course, the ever-present holiday sales. The push to purchase can seem overwhelming as we make our lists and check them twice.
- The Huffington Post – 450 Email Subject Lines From End of Year Fundraising – For several years now, January 1st not only means the beginning of the New Year, but also an opportunity to look at trends in year-end fundraising emails from nonprofit organizations. Back in 2011, I started collecting all the emails that nonprofits sent me during the month of December and reviewed what was in my inbox. Here is the 2015 edition of my annual review of year-end nonprofit fundraising email subject lines.
- The Post & Courier – Good Cheer Fund gets $35,700 boost from Blackbaud, employees – As has become a tradition with the Good Cheer Fund, each Christmas Eve we are privileged to announce a contribution from Blackbaud and its employees. This year we are pleased to accept a check in the amount of $35,706.50, bringing the company’s generous total contribution to $650,046.77 since 1991.
- The Post & Courier – SC stocks had lackluster performance in 2015, but Charleston shares buck trend – Another notable stock-market star was Blackbaud Inc. The Daniel Island company, the world’s biggest provider of software and technology services for the nonprofit industry, posted a 55 percent gain in its share price in 2015, pushing the value of the entire business above the $3 billion mark.
- Daniel Island News – You Never Know What Life Will Bring You – About five years ago, Daniel Island resident Dave Martin learned about a volunteer opportunity through one of his colleagues at Blackbaud. He had heard of the Meals on Wheels national organization but wasn’t familiar with the local group that serves the East Cooper area, including Daniel Island. Dave inquired and soon became an active volunteer along with fellow team members from Blackbaud, delivering meals to homebound recipients every month.
