Blackbaud: Community Ambassador Award
Blackbaud received Charleston Animal Society’s Community Ambassador Award at the Society’s 146th Annual Meeting. Blackbaud President & CEO Mike Gianoni and his wife Kathie are surrounded by Charleston Animal Society Board Members and staff (L-R) Patricia Henley, Joe Elmore, Laurel Greer, Carolyn Murray, and Hank Greer.
Blackbaud’s world headquarters are located on Daniel Island, just across the harbor from Charleston, SC. This international company makes the world’s leading cloud solution powering social good.
Blackbaud software is used by thousands of nonprofits around the globe. Blackbaud was honored by Charleston Animal Society for building a better community for all of us and showing compassion for animals through their actions.
Among its many supportive actions for animals, Blackbaud sponsored and helped build a fence for a family’s dogs on Edisto Island, through Charleston Animal Society’s Pets for Life Program last summer. Pets for Life is an outreach program in urban and rural areas of Charleston. More than a dozen volunteers from Blackbaud participated in the fence build. Also, the President and CEO of Blackbaud, Mike Gianoni, and his wife Kathie, starred in an advocacy video for Charleston Animal Society, promoting the adoption of Pit bulls, the most endangered breed of dogs in shelters across the country.
