Animal welfare charities choose Blackbaud’s eTapestry


A number of animal welfare charities, including All Dogs Matter, Border Collie Trust GB and two RSPCA branches have chosen Blackbaud’s cloud-based fundraising and relationship management solution eTapestry, to help boost their fundraising and supporter communications.

eTapestry is designed for smaller, developing nonprofits, providing them with a range of features, including event registrations, built-in reporting, integrated email, online donations, contact management and payment processing.

The RSPCA Derby and District Branch runs multiple fundraising events throughout the year and will use eTapestry to effectively manage these events using one solution instead of using multiple spreadsheets. All Dogs Matter, a small rescue and rehoming charity based in North London, will use eTapestry to help manage relationships with its existing donors, with the ultimate goal of increasing recurring giving.

Julie Platts, branch fundraiser for RSPCA Chesterfield & North Derbyshire said: “Our main purpose is to take in unwanted and abandoned animals, and find them loving, permanent homes. We rely on public donations and the generosity of our local community to keep the doors of our animal centre open. I was looking for a fundraising and relationship management solution and provider that would enable me as a fundraiser to make full use of robust relationship management tools and offer me assistance when needed. For me, Blackbaud’s eTapestry fundraising solution was the clear choice. Their goal is my goal; to help take our charity’s fundraising programme to the next level. I have no doubt that we will accomplish this together.”

Blackbaud Europe’s General Manager Core Products, Michael Savitz said: “Local branches of animal welfare charities are heavily reliant on the generosity of their donors and volunteers. With eTapestry, these organisations can improve relationship management with existing and new donors, as well as make them more effective in running events and appeals. We look forward to helping them with their fundraising goals.”
