We are excited to announce we have acquired EVERFI, a global social impact technology leader that has pioneered the field of Impact-as-a-Service™, offering a subscription-based model that enables organizations to deliver social impact at scale through their cloud-based software platform and digital educational content. Through their platform and program offerings, EVERFI is also able to yield anonymized learner data to reflect the true impact of their educational offerings.
Together, we will lead corporations in driving meaningful social impact across a vast span of technology-enabled programmatic areas, from community education to volunteering to grantmaking and philanthropy. Over the last 14 years, EVERFI has built a highly regarded brand in the SaaS and social impact industries. EVERFI technology and learning platform catalyzes the resources, commitment, and expertise of the corporate sector into digital educational content that has reached more than 45 million learners globally on critical topics ranging from financial literacy to health and well-being. Being part of Blackbaud represents a unique opportunity to continue EVERFI’s mission of making a measurable impact through educational content.
What this means
At Blackbaud, our higher purpose is “to help good take over the world.” EVERFI’s transformative mission of tackling our most pressing social challenges through education is deeply aligned with this purpose, and we believe that we can accomplish even more together. As one organization, we will bring together two key players in the social impact subscription space, able to fully leverage a vast school network, unmatched corporate customer base, and recognized excellence in the growing environmental, social and governance (ESG) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) space to drive greater social impact. Blackbaud and EVERFI’s longstanding relationships within the social good community will continue to drive meaningful and measurable impact with an unmatched global reach.
What this means for our customers
We couldn’t imagine a more natural fit in terms of culture and mission. We share a deep cultural alignment, commitment to social impact and leadership in the ESG, CSR and education spaces. For now, customers will continue to work with each of our teams as they have in the past, depending on us for the same commitment to impact and great customer service they’ve come to expect from us. There are no immediate changes to either of our solutions.
