Charleston, S.C. (Nov. 19, 2002) -- Nonprofit industry software developer Blackbaud has formed an alliance with, Inc., a live events ticketing solutions provider, to develop a new type of technology for nonprofit organizations.

The software companies said they will enable Blackbaud's Raiser's Edge fundraising management system to communicate with's ticketing software in systems that "coordinate fundraising, patron management and ticketing functions" for nonprofits. They expect the systems to "increase nonprofits' ability to successfully develop key relationships."

The joint effort targets the more than 10,000 nonprofits, including museums, performing arts groups, zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens, which, in addition to collecting donations to support their work, operate box offices that sell tickets for entry to their grounds or events.

Blackbaud sells through a channel of 20 resellers, 16 of whom are accountants or organizations affiliated with accounting firms.
