Still Skeptical After All These Years:
On Blackbaud’s 5th Annual Charitable Giving Report

Blackbaud’s fifth annual Charitable Giving Report leverages data from the Blackbaud Index (updated monthly) resulting in an extensive and unique analysis of global charitable giving data. If you can afford Raiser’s Edge NXT, you may have a love/hate relationship with Blackbaud; their products do tend to dominate the market. Nevertheless, it is still good manners to be grateful for their effort to understand what they see in real time from their privileged vantage point and their generosity in freely sharing their insights with rest of us whether or not you are a customer. A new feature this year is the inclusion of expert opinions from the field on the fundraising trends indicated by Blackbaud’s data.
