Show off your awesome!

A badge is a visual token of your achievement. The actions you take in the Blackbaud Community will help you build a bountiful badge collection. There are two types of these success symbols in the Community. Authority badges identify your area of expertise in the Community and in your product(s). Activity badges you can collect by performing various tasks in the Community. Staying active will help you earn more badges. For a full description of each badge and what they represent, feast your eyes on the information below. Happy Badging!
