“GivingTuesday has become so much more than just one day. It’s a movement and an important reminder that what truly matters is that people are engaging with causes – and causes that they care about by giving their time, resources or inspiring others to give back – not just on this one day, but throughout the year,” said Rachel Hutchisson, VP of corporate citizenship and philanthropy at Blackbaud. “Social good is at the heart of who we are – we are powering an Ecosystem of Good® that builds a better world. Now eight years after the inception of this global day of giving, we’re excited to amplify four unique stories of impact that will hopefully encourage others to make a difference year-round.”

Blackbaud’s Chief Marketing Officer Catherine LaCour and Hutchisson will lead the Blackbaud Impact Center on GivingTuesday at the Nasdaq MarketSite where they will be joined by members of the social good community and their direct beneficiaries to open the day’s market and continue the celebration with live interviews throughout the day. Special guests, include:

Additionally, on GivingTuesday, Blackbaud is launching The Explorer by The Blackbaud Institute, which provides a complete knowledge base of up-to-date information and statics about social good.
