AcademicWorks Acquired by Blackbaud

From the day we founded AcademicWorks in 2010, our mission has been to help colleges, universities, K-12 and foundations improve access to education through innovative technology and fanatical customer service. We are excited to announce that AcademicWorks is now a part of Blackbaud. By joining forces with the leading provider of software and services for the global social good, we can accelerate our pace of innovation and serve the higher education and foundation community better.

What This Means For The Higher Education, K-12 And Foundation Communities 

With the addition of AcademicWorks, Blackbaud expands capabilities for Blackbaud’s Higher Education, K-12 and Foundation customers. Blackbaud offers best-in-class software, services, expertise and data intelligence that drive success across campus for educational institutions. This includes powering fundraising and advancement programs, donor and alumni relationship management, online engagement, and financial management.

Joining forces with AcademicWorks offers a powerful new opportunity to deepen connections across the ecosystem of good powered by Blackbaud solutions. This includes plans for enhanced integration between AcademicWorks and Blackbaud’s portfolio of nonprofit and education-focused software and service, that will extend the capabilities for our joint clients.

What This Means For Our Clients

As our team makes the transition to Blackbaud, specifically the Higher Education Solutions team within Blackbaud, our commitment to improving access to education through innovating technology and providing fanatical customer service has never been stronger.  Our team will continue to provide the same level of service and support that our clients have come to expect from AcademicWorks. We’ll be sharing more information soon, but in the meantime feel free to register for our Better Together: Blackbaud and AcademicWorks Webinar on Tuesday, April 11th at 1pm CST, or contact me directly at bphipps@academicworks.com.
