A Rising Need in an Unprecedented Era

In an unprecedented era of humanitarian need, it’s becoming more expensive and complex for nonprofits to respond due to global conflicts, natural disasters, and localized challenges. For many nonprofits, the ability to effectively source, track, distribute and measure the impact of physical goods is a critical part of delivering your mission.

Whether it’s urgently needed medical supplies, disaster response equipment, or essential needs like food and clothing, every dollar saved, and every supply more efficiently distributed has the power to transform and save lives.

To address this need, Blackbaud and Microsoft teamed up to design, build and deliver Nonprofit Resource Management, a purpose-built resource management suite optimized for the complex and differentiated needs of nonprofits.
