This is $600 of training offered for only $349!). Blackbaud University Day is for full conference pass holders only—secure your registration today*.

Blackbaud University Sessions include two formats:

Bring your own laptop

The majority of Blackbaud University Day sessions are designed to provide you guided hands-on practice in your Blackbaud solution. Bring your preferred way of accessing your solution and we’ll provide the sample database environment!
Not interested in using a computer during these sessions? That’s fine! You are more than welcome to join sans-technology and simply take notes instead.

Note: Blackbaud does not provide laptops for use in any Blackbaud University Day sessions. You must bring your own device in order to complete the hands-on activities.


Organizational Best Practices workshop sessions are designed to spark conversation and collaboration on topics beyond your Blackbaud solution. Spend these sessions brainstorming and networking with your peers, while also learning from our experienced Blackbaud University instructors.


Blackbaud University Day sessions are offered for the following solutions:

Blackbaud Financial Edge NXT

Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge NXT / Raiser’s Edge

Blackbaud ResearchPoint

Organizational Best Practices

*A complete list of Blackbaud University Day sessions will be available soon! At that time, you’ll be able to select the courses you’d like to secure a seat in. Check back later this spring for more details.
