Through their partnership with Blackbaud, Sisters of Charity re-engaged lost donors and increased average gift size by 60%. The group raised nearly $200,000 more through its annual appeal, helping drive mission work further. Sisters of Charity uses Blackbaud's comprehensive Intelligence for Good to raise nearly 200% more through its annual appeal. When Andy Schroeder was hired as the director of development for Sisters of Charity, the organization was using a one-size-fits-all approach for its annual appeal, asking all donors to contribute the same amount each year. Because Andy came from an organization that used Raiser's Edge® with Blackbaud Target Analytics®, he pushed for Sisters of Charity to be more strategic with its fundraising, using data to make decisions and drive donor behavior. After reaching out to Blackbaud, Sisters of Charity made the move to Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT®, the cloud software company's flagship fundraising and relationship management solution. Sisters of Charity is powered by Blackbaud solutions for: ✓ Fundraising and relationship management ✓ Marketing ✓ Merchant services "I attribute the increase in our average gift amount to the Intelligence for Good ® capabilities embedded in Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT ® . Without it, we would have raised around the same amount as we did the previous year." —Andy Schroeder, Director of Development Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Freed by Love, Acting for Justice
