May 20, 2016 - Blackbaud, the leading provider of software and services for the global philanthropic community, is expanding its existing world headquarters operations in Berkeley County. The project is expected to create 300 new jobs over the next five years.

Founded in 1981, Blackbaud serves the nonprofit, charitable giving, corporate social responsibility and education communities.

The company offers cloud and on-premise solutions, as well as a resource network that assists and connects organizations of all sizes.

Using Blackbaud technology, these organizations raise, invest, manage and award more than $100 billion each year, according to the firm.

With approximately 35,000 customers in 60 countries, Blackbaud operates facilities in the United States, Australia, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom. 

In an effort to expand its corporate headquarters in Berkeley County, Blackbaud is moving into a larger estimated 360,000 sq. ft. facility on Daniel Island. Expected to be completed in phases, phase one of the new facility will be located at the intersection of Fairchild Street and Central Island Street, while phase two will be located at the intersection of River Landing Drive and Fairchild Street. 

With construction of phase one anticipated for completion in 2018, Blackbaud is actively recruiting new staff and expects new positions to be added as the project progresses. The company’s website is www.blackbaud.com

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development in South Carolina has approved job development credits related to the project, according to Gov. Nicki Haley’s office.   

 “For nearly thirty years, we’ve called South Carolina home, and we’re proud to deepen our roots in this great state with this generational investment. This community is very important to us, and this project improves our ability to give back in even more meaningful ways, while boosting the local economy. I’d like to thank the State of South Carolina, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Berkeley County and City of Charleston for their continued support of Blackbaud and for their commitment in making South Carolina a place where technology companies and those they employ can thrive,” said Blackbaud president and CEO Mike Gianoni, in making the announcement.

Blackbaud, the largest software company in South Carolina, is expanding operations in Berkeley County.  Blackbaud is publicly traded (NASDAQ: BLKB).
