When we first introduced BlackbaudNow® our goal was to provide an easy-to-use and affordable website solution for collecting online donations quickly with PayPal®. We are pleased that it has helped so many organizations with their online fundraising needs. However, we have determined that other solutions within the Blackbaud family of products are better suited to meet our customers' evolving needs, so we will discontinue the BlackbaudNow® service effective January 1, 2013. We will continue disbursing any existing donations until this date.
Then, starting January 1, 2013:
- All BlackbaudNow websites will become inaccessible and logins to those databases will be disabled
- Any donations that have not been successfully disbursed to you will be refunded to the donor
- Blackbaud will honor any chargeback claims for up to 90 days after the effective shutdown date
- Appropriate 1099-K forms will be distributed to fundraisers who qualify with 2012 donation activity
Rest assured that we remain committed to your success and the support of more than 26,000 nonprofits.
We would be honored to continue to help you support your mission with eTapestry, our flagship fundraising solution for small nonprofits. eTapestry will allow you to continue your online eMarketing efforts with unlimited user licenses, free integration with Constant Contact and Blackbaud Merchant Services, training, and on-demand customer support for as little as $79 per month.
