Blackbaud Developer Resources

Blackbaud provides solutions to more than 22,000 nonprofits around the world and partners with leading vendors to better serve the nonprofit community. APIs are available for all of Blackbaud’s solutions.

We currently offer bundled free and open APIs with Blackbaud NetCommunity, Blackbaud Sphere, Blackbaud Enterprise CRM and eTapestry. All of Blackbaud’s next-generation solutions built on the Infinity platform will include full access to the APIs along with documentation for ease of integration/customization, allowing clients to use APIs as part of the solution.

Blackbaud has over 2,500 clients that are very satisfied with the integration between our products and those of complementary third parties. Some of these clients include well known organizations like the American Red Cross, YMCA of the USA, the National Audubon Society, The U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association & Foundation, and West Virginia University Foundation.

We established the Blackbaud Connect Partner Network to further support and verify vendors with complementary solutions. Blackbaud has several partners that have developed successful integrated solutions to The Raiser's Edge including IATS, PaperSave, MaestroSoft, Radiant Systems, FreeCause, and Fusion Labs.

These are just a few of the fundraising resources, articles, and communities that can help you explore Blackbaud’s open solutions:
