West Virginia University Foundation

The West Virginia University Foundation Uses Blackbaud Solutions to Provide Staff Easy-to-Access Information

The West Virginia University Foundation, Inc. is a private nonprofit corporation with assets of more than $670 million and an endowment nearing $350 million. It was chartered in 1954 to secure, hold, and administer funds and properties given by individuals, corporations, and philanthropic foundations in support of West Virginia University and its affiliated organizations. Such gifts provide needed funds for scholarships, fellowships, faculty development, academic programs and research, modern equipment, and more.

Challenge

With state appropriations decreasing, the Foundation was playing an increasingly critical role in augmenting the University’s funding with private dollars. To stay competitive, fundraising staff used prospect and donor information to build stronger relationships and increase donations. In addition, those managing the endowment’s 3,500 funds had to ensure that key internal and external stakeholders had accurate financial information available at their fingertips at all times.

Solution

To meet these growing needs, the Foundation chose a combination of software and services from Blackbaud including The Raiser’s Edge®, The Financial Edge™, The Information Edge™, and custom statistical modeling and wealth identification services provided by Target Analytics.
