Happy Wednesday, Blackbaud Community, 

Our “Boost your Badges” campaign is going strong! It’s now easier than ever to reach Level 4 and 5 for both Facilitator and Inquirer, PLUS we are offering triple community points for asking a question and responding to a question.

By the numbers: Congratulations to all 52 of our NEW Level One Facilitators and all 85 of our NEW Level One Inquirers. Here in the next few weeks, we’ll be celebrating our members that boosted their badges all the way up to level five! Keep those questions and answers coming.  


In the latest episode of the sgENGAGE podcast, hear from Shaady Salehi, executive director, Trust-Based Philanthropy Project, Lisa Maloney-Vinz, director of global community relations, Ecolab Foundation, Drexel Owusu, chief impact officer, The Dallas Foundation, and Lauren Scott, executive director, Harris and Eliza Kempner Fund about how their organizations are embracing transparency.

Yellow ninjas have completed level two of ninja training. They keep up with what is going on in the Community and are a reliable influencer for other members. This month, our yellow ninjas share tips that will help you leverage community, earn points, and earn badges! Welcome to our newest yellow ninjas; Nicole Holt and Matt Connell.
Emojis are many people’s go-to communication tool to show appreciation.  We see many of you use them too! 
Let’s show our appreciation to the Yellow Ninjas and click the b03d43ac5c672dcb25686d65ef78fd96-huge-in emoji if you are going to give any of the tips a try!
