New Year, New Fundamentals

Blackbaud University is welcoming the new year with refreshed and streamlined Fundamentals courses!

We know you need to get your job done faster than ever, so we’ve condensed the Blackbaud Grantmaking Fundamentals series into two courses that cover what you need to get started:

Blackbaud Grantmaking: Fundamentals—Overview and Proposals
Learn how to input your organization’s data correctly. Navigate to and create organization, request, and contact records. Explore using write-ups and activities to track actions related to proposals. Practice approving and declining requests.

Blackbaud Grantmaking: Fundamentals—Grant Management
Learn how to manage your grants efficiently. Create requirement records to track information due from grantees. Generate letters and emails. Update payments and requirements to keep records up-to-date. Use dashboards to review and analyze important data.

  1. I’ve taken the Fundamentals before. Will I benefit from taking them again?

    Yes! These refreshed courses focus on application and best practices, so every user walks away with some new tips and tricks.
  2. What happened to Blackbaud Grantmaking: Fundamentals—Searching 1 and Blackbaud Grantmaking: Fundamentals—Data Analysis 1?

    In order to get you back to work more quickly, we’ve included information about searching in the new, refreshed Fundamentals courses. We are transforming Blackbaud Grantmaking: Fundamentals—Data Analysis 1 into a brand-new course for 2019, which will no longer be part of the Fundamentals series. This new structure will get you back to work faster, but still imparts all the great Blackbaud Grantmaking knowledge you need to get the job done.
  3. What if I have already started the Fundamentals series?

    You do not have to start over! All previously fulfilled prerequisites are still valid. You will be able to pick up a course in the new Fundamentals series right where you left off in the previous series.
  4. Do I need to retake the 2018 Blackbaud Grantmaking Fundamentals Certification Exam?
    Your 2018 Blackbaud Grantmaking Fundamentals Certification is still valid. You do not need to retake the exam if you have already earned a passing score. Beginning January 1, you can take the 2019 Blackbaud Grantmaking Fundamentals Exam to re-certify and update your credentials.
