Important Update!

Blackbus recently underwent some major changes and, just like an awesome new haircut, we are excited to show it off! Here you will find all the same features of the former Blackbus site - forums, events, news, etc. - but with a new look and improved functionality. We hope these changes will enhance your overall experience, allow you to easily connect with each other, and help you get the most out of your Blackbaud software.

However, a side effect of the Blackbus face lift is that forum email subscriptions did not make the cut. If you are interested in receiving forum updates, please log in using your credentials and visit the forums to edit or update your subscriptions.

Calling all RE know-it-alls!

Do you consider yourself a Raiser’s Edge guru?  Are you often the person at your organization that others turn to for RE-related inquiries?  Would you like to prove your expertise with something more than an “I told you so”?  If so, look no further!  Blackbaud Certification in The Raiser’s Edge (bCRE) can help you become official.

Why invest in a piece of paper to prove your RE knowledge?  For the same reason you would invest in a college degree.  The bCRE helps you establish yourself as an expert in the field by achieving credentials recognized as the industry standard.  It makes you more valuable to your current organization and more attractive to potential employers.  It also looks really cool to have “bCRE” behind your name on a business card.

The bCRE is a professional development program designed by a myriad of nonprofit professionals, organizations, and consultants.  It is available to all users of The Raiser’s Edge and offers three levels of certification – Associate, Professional, and Master. Similar to the college SATs, a prep guide is available so you can brush up on your skills before the big day.
