The Blackbaud Giving Fund and ACH
In August 2020, Blackbaud made some process and procedural changes regarding the disbursement of charitable funds to our nonprofit partners. Our relationship with FIS, with whom your ACH bank details were managed, has changed such that The Blackbaud Giving Fund will now be the source of all banking details for charitable disbursements.
This means that if you have not updated your banking details via our NPOConnect platform, we need you to sign into NPOconnect and provide us with the account details to which we can continue to transfer charitable funds being paid out to you by donors in the Global Good Network.
