Finance & Accounting at a Glance:

Maintain the highest level of accountability

Not for profits pledge to be faithful stewards of public funds; therefore, they have an obligation to continually
strive for excellence in financial management, which means ensuring compliance with complex
accounting regulations. As a not for profit organisation, you need proof — hard evidence — that your resources are being used to deliver on your mission.

With The Financial Edge, you can:

  • Share timely, accurate information with key stakeholders (such as internal management, funders and your board)
  • Ensure donated funds are accounted for and protected
  • Produce easy-to-understand, presentation-quality reports and analysis


Be PCI Compliant with Blackbaud Payment Services

You already know that it's extremely important to keep your constituents' information safe. It's an integral part of demonstrating good stewardship — not to mention, it shows that your organisation is trustworthy. But keeping information secure became even more important when the credit card industry established new security standards for processing credit card information. These standards are called Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, also referred to as "PCI DSS" or simply "PCI Compliance.".

The Blackbaud Payment Service enables you to comply with the PCI DSS and continue to seamlessly maintain
and process credit card transactions. It's an easy way to treat your constituents’ credit card information with the protection and security it requires and deserves.
