Blackbaud To Acquire JustGiving

If you haven't heard the great news, Blackbaud entered into an agreement to acquire United Kingdom-based online fundraising services provider JustGiving™, whose online social giving platform has played a powerful role in the growth of peer-to-peer fundraising. JustGiving’s platform has helped individual change agents in 164 countries raise over $4.5 billion for good causes since its founding in 2001.
As a technology leader dedicated to innovation that drives social good, it’s in our DNA to respond to and anticipate changes in the way people give and connect with causes. Given the rapid growth of social, mobile and peer-to-peer giving, it’s an important priority for us to continue to advance our capabilities and extend the strong foundation we have built with everydayhero® and TeamRaiser® peer-to-peer giving solutions in Australia, the U.S. and the U.K. 
We are enthusiastic about the potential for continued innovation around individual-driven fundraising with a dynamic partner like JustGiving, whose online giving platform has made it simple for people around the world to contribute to causes they care about. 
In addition, bringing JustGiving into the Blackbaud family:Adds a new personal crowdfunding capability (individuals donating to other individuals), with a focus on helping nonprofits participate in this growing form of giving, an important expression of our commitment to helping nonprofits stay ahead of the curve with new trends in fundraising.
Positions us to better serve the U.K. market, where we have operated for more than two decades, and where JustGiving is a fundraising leader.This acquisition will undergo a customary regulatory review in the UK which we anticipate will take several months.
With this acquisition, more great things are in store for our customers!
