I'll start! Hi, I'm Crystal Bruce. I'm the Community Manager for eTapestry. I'm also the Community Manager for the Target Analytics Online Community. I've been in Community Management for about a year. Prior to that, I spent 15 years in television news working as a Producer, Executive Producer, and a Marketing and Events Coordinator. My previous career took me to Las Vegas, Nevada and Savannah, Georgia before finally settling (again) in Charleston. I am a photographer in my spare time and I love to ride my bike around the beautiful neighborhoods in my town. I love being a Community Manager!

Time to get this party started! I'm Tiffany Getch- nice to meet you! I'm the eTapestry New Customer Success Program Manager. I've been a member of the eTapestry team since I joined Blackbaud nearly two years ago. I'm an Indiana native but recently moved to the Charleston area.(Still adjusting to summer in the South!) When I'm not delivering Success Seminars I love exploring my new city with my husband and three year old son. Feel free to reach out if you have questions about the New Customer Success Program- I'm happy to help!

I'm Heather, and I support 5 hospitals in Northern California for Adventist Health as their Development Analyst. I started in fundraising 9 years ago at the Foundation office for St. Helena Hospital, one of those 5. I love to play with data, and use both Raiser's Edge and eTapestry in supporting those 5 hospitals. I love to learn more about what each piece of software can do, and am excited to see this eTapestry community!

Howdy! My name is Stephen Gordon and I oversee eTapestry for U.S.VETS, a national nonprofit that provides housing, job training, and counseling for veterans. We coordinate all of our fundraising efforts at our 11 sites through eTapestry. I've been an eTapestry user for almost 6 years...time flies when you're having fun! Prior to U.S.VETS, my brother and I started a bakery near USC in Los Angeles. We milled wheat and baked bread for about 5 years. I live in LA with my lovely wife and enjoy playing piano for fun. Feel free to let me know if there is a way that I can bless you!

Gidday! My name is Greg Simmons. I'm a eTap user and administrator for Special Olympics Sydney Upper North Shore Region and I cofounded a fun run - The Kuringgai Chase" that raises money for the region. We use Everyday Hero as our Peer-2-Peer platform combined with eTapestry. I'm also President/Chair of Down Syndrome NSW (a Raisers Edge user) - it's an exciting time to be involved with the organisation as there have never been more opportunities for people living with DS. I have a 21 year old daughter Kate who was born the DS. And... I work for Blackbaud Pacific and lead the eTapestry and Efforts-to-Outcomes businesses in this region. Excited to be part of this community - we love eTap!

Holiday Greetings to everyone here! I'm 2 1/2 months into my new role at Drug Prevention Resources in the Dallas, TX area. I'm very excited about all of the things that e-Tapestry will help our 80 year old non-profit do. I have to say that I am somewhat overwhelmed the implementation process since my webinar training won't happen until next month. Any helpful hints for how to dive right in and experiment? We have no donor history as we have always been state-funded. Thanks so much!

Hi my name is Tari and I am new to Blackbaud/eTapestry. Today I am comparing my UDF to the SDF for our database. Is there an easy way to make the comparison, a list perhaps of SDF?

Hello! My name is Marie Buchwalter and I am the Development Director for the Community Coalition for Haiti. We are about 6 months into using our eTapestry Database and I still feel like I have a lot to learn. I am hoping this community will be a valuable resource for us going forward.
