“BlackbaudTV is a nonprofit video portal, enabling nonprofits and those passionate about a cause to interact with peers, learn, share, and raise awareness through video,” said Mary Beth Natarajan, director of corporate communications at Blackbaud. “It’s a venue for video resources and knowledge sharing, where nonprofits can learn about the latest technology trends and contribute their own video content as well. Launching BlackbaudTV with a contest is exciting because we are getting nonprofits involved in video making. We’re not looking for the perfect delivery or the best picture quality–we’re just looking for nonprofits to share a video on how they inspire action.”

The BlackbaudTV video portal includes videos that are searchable and embeddable that are thematically grouped by channel, and also features resources for nonprofit video making.

Visitors can tune into channels including:

  • Nonprofit News to learn about trends, issues, and news—stay current on issues facing your specific sector, and be the first to find out about events that impact the nonprofit community.
