Blackbaud Completes Acquisition Of JustGiving

If you haven't heard the great news, Blackbaud has completed the acquisition of 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 as helped individual change agents in 164 countries raise over $4.5 billion for good causes since its founding in 2001.
Why acquire JustGiving?
This acquisition reflects Blackbaud’s commitment to innovation that increases the impact of individual donors. In a rapidly transforming landscape, Blackbaud is committed to ensuring that its customers across the social good community have the innovative capabilities they need to connect with their supporters and drive impact for their causes. Social and mobile giving continue to grow, and fundraising driven by individual supporters rallying others to give (referred to as “peer-to-peer fundraising” in the sector) is playing a more significant role than ever in charitable giving.
This acquisition will enhance Blackbaud’s capabilities to serve both individual donors and nonprofits, expanding the peer-to-peer fundraising capabilities Blackbaud offers today through TeamRaiser® and everydayhero, which are used by leading nonprofit organizations to connect their causes to the individuals who support them. The acquisition will also add a new personal crowdfunding capability as well as position Blackbaud to better serve the U.K. market, where it has operated for more than two decades, and where JustGiving is a fundraising leader.
