In 2016, Blackbaud launched the Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact. It was out of our belief that, beyond the technology we produce that helps organizations be efficient, we can play a major role in helping your organizations be more effective because we are able to deliver data that provides valuable insights to overall giving trends as well as household donor demographics and behaviors.
This program will give you a snapshot of not only some of that work but also provide a bird's eye view of what we're seeing across the sector. We'll cover the macro trends on giving, donor insights, key trends to watch for, and share what's coming next.
This event will include special guest speaker Susan Ulrich, CFRE, who serves as the Director of Business Development at Blackbaud.
Susan brings more than 16 years of fundraising and nonprofit administration experience to her role at Blackbaud as Director of Business Development with Customer Operations. She leads a team that is responsible for developing and confirming solutions to meet the business critical needs of Blackbaud’s customers.
She acts as a trusted advisor and key interface point with clients as well as a liaison between other key functions at Blackbaud including sales, professional services, customer success, customer support, and product management.
Prior to joining Blackbaud, Susan led the J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital Foundation in Central Pennsylvania as its first executive director. She was responsible for all aspects of foundation management including fundraising, financial management, database management, policy development and implementation, fund distribution, marketing, and public relations. Susan began her career in fundraising at Penn State University.
