NetCommunity Spark Gives The Hewitt School the Gift of Time

The Hewitt School, founded in 1920, is a college preparatory school for girls in kindergarten through grade twelve. The school is located in Manhattan and draws students from the tri-state area.  At present, there are 525 students enrolled.


  • The Hewitt School had an outdated system to accept online donations that required staff to print out the donations received online and then manually process the transactions at a credit card terminal in-house.
  • Accepting online donations through this system was labor-intensive.
  • Additionally, the alumnae database used by The Hewitt School would require alumnae to sign up online and maintain their own account information, which was housed in a separate system.


  • The Hewitt School moved its online donation system to NetCommunity Spark, added RE:Event, and moved to Blackbaud Merchant Services for donation processing.
  • With NetCommunity Spark, The Hewitt School can give donors the option to make recurring gifts and conveniently set up pledges online.
  • The School also utilizes Advanced Email in NetCommunity Spark to communicate with alumnae.
  • NetCommunity Spark also gives The Hewitt School the ability to accept online registrations for its alumnae and fundraising events.
  • Blackbaud Merchant Services is easy to use and provides a flat rate across credit card types.


  • The Hewitt School has saved a significant amount of time.
  • Since launching the system, approximately five people have already set up recurring gifts online. Midkiff believes that that this option has enabled donors the ease and flexibility to give more.
