Blackbaud Launches New Accountant Referral Program

Blackbaud, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLKB) today announced its new Accountant Referral Program, providing software incentives and additional resources to accountants that choose to refer The Financial Edge®, its comprehensive fund accounting solution, to their nonprofit clients.

“As a member of Blackbaud’s new Accountant Referral Program, we can feel good about presenting our nonprofit clients with an accounting solution that works the way they do,” said Stuart C. Rosenberg, CPA and president of Solutions@MBAF, LLC. “With The Financial Edge, we are choosing to recommend a platform that comes with unparalleled expertise in reporting, grant and restricted giving management, and workflows designed specifically for nonprofit organizations.”

In addition to a referral bonus (with the ability to pass this along to nonprofit clients), all accountant members receive access to free educational trainings, "sandbox" demo environments and sneak peeks at upcoming product launches.

“CPAs represent a very important professional workforce whose assistance nonprofits continually rely on,” said Scott Bechler, who leads Blackbaud’s partnership program. “Blackbaud’s new Accountant Referral Program will provide CPAs the knowledge and resources they need to help advise nonprofit organizations on financial software that best meets their unique needs.”

Blackbaud will feature the accountant referral program at the 2012 AICPA National Not-for-Profit Industry Conference, which will be held June 21 to 22 in Washington, D.C. As one of the event sponsors, Blackbaud will also lead the educational session “Leveraging Accountability: Enhance Your Value to Nonprofit Clients” at 7 a.m. E.T. on Thursday, June 21 and will offer demonstrations of The Financial Edge and the new Blackbaud Strategic Benchmarking service in booth 206.

The Financial Edge is a comprehensive fund accounting solution designed to transform data by supporting advanced reporting, grant management, restricted fund management, nonprofit-specific workflows and collaboration with the fundraising department. Blackbaud Strategic Benchmarking is a new service that helps nonprofits quickly analyze the financial health of their organizations and compare themselves against sector peers using real-time benchmarking.

Free resources for nonprofit financial professionals

Blackbaud recently released a new white paper, Why Nonprofits Need Nonprofit Accounting Software, focused on managing unique revenue streams. The paper covers regulations and standards nonprofits face, how to support distinct nonprofit business processes, nonprofit reporting and budgeting, accountability, donor stewardship and intent, and internal controls. In addition, Blackbaud is hosting a series of web seminars If You Were Using the Financial Edge, You'd be Done by Now! to introduce how The Financial Edge can meet the unique needs of nonprofits.
