“We are here to help GOOD take over the world” was the theme of this year’s BBCON conference in Austin, Texas.
Blackbaud is the leading provider of nonprofit software and services and is the Scleroderma Foundation’s partner with its web presence and online fundraising and advocacy efforts.
The Foundation is in good company with many of the largest nonprofits in the world co-partnering with Blackbaud and its leading technology. Here are just a few of the thousands of organizations that are successfully increasing online donations, executing email fundraising campaigns, managing volunteer fundraising events, and motivating constituents through Blackbaud’s software and services: Boy Scouts of America, Easter Seals, American Diabetes Foundation, American Red Cross, Susan G. Koman for the Cure, Lupus Foundation, National MS Society, Habitat for Humanity and the Life is Good Foundation.
Tracey O’Connell Sperry, National Director of Development and Research and Maureen Zuluaga, Senior Database Administrator along with 2,500 other nonprofit attendees sat in on sessions and interactive workshops such as Harnessing Your Organizations Story, The Future of Nonprofit Technology, the Future of Fundraising, Keep Your Content Weird, Relevant, and Fresh, and Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Geek Out.
The crowd was also treated to a keynote by actress, author, humanitarian, and activist, Ashley Judd. Ms. Judd shared her experiences witnessing firsthand the challenges people around the world are facing and inspired the crowd to take action for our causes.
