Blackbaud Social Launches to Help Nonprofits Increase Constituent Engagement through Social Media - MarketWatch: "In partnership with ThePort Network, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) will use Blackbaud Social to provide a private online community for its members. Founded in 1960, AFP advances ethical and effective fundraising through its 30,000 members in 213 chapters throughout the world. 'The fundraising profession advances through open communication, networking and the sharing of knowledge, which is why AFP's work with The Port and implementation of Blackbaud Social is so important,' said Kathy Compton, chief marketing officer for AFP. 'This robust social media platform will create an online community where AFP members can easily access new value-added programs, interact with colleagues, and work towards achieving their organizations' philanthropic missions.'"
