Press Coverage Highlights from 3/26/16 – 4/7/16
Our data, expertise and more were featured in many prominent publications,
such as Entrepreneur, Nasdaq, AFP Blog, and The NonProfit Times
- Nasdaq – Microsoft Teams Up with Toyota for Connected Car Services – Currently, Microsoft is a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) stock. Better choices for investors would be Blackbaud Inc. BLKB and NetSol Technologies, Inc. NTWK both sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
- Entrepreneur – Are Millennials the Most Generous Generation? – Millennials also have distinct preferences for how they want to donate. A study by Blackbaud and Sea Change Research found that Millennials demand two things with their charitable donations: transparency and accountability. With lower disposable incomes than older groups, they want to make sure their hard-earned dollars truly make a difference.
- AFP Blog – The (Non)Impact of Political Campaigns on Charitable Fundraising – Some great new research came out last week from Blackbaud about how political giving impacts nonprofit support. I was pleased to be able to write the forward for the report, which you can find here, but the findings bear repeating.
- The NonProfit Times – 2 concepts to boost membership participation – Contributing membership was the chosen avenue. NatGeo decided to focus on direct mail, which still drives 93% of individual giving, according to a Blackbaud study, and tends to be the preferred model of the organization’s target audience, Baby Boomers and older adults.
- Our Sports Central – RiverDogs Commence 20th Season at the Joe with Explosive Opening Homestand – Dogs with a Cause” also returns on Monday nights, and for the first time in association with Blackbaud, Inc.
