Blackbaud Helps Drive Alumni Engagement for the University of Virginia

Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University of Virginia sustains the ideal of developing, through education, leaders who are well prepared to help shape the future of the nation. The University is public, while nourished by the strong support of its alumni. It is also selective; the students who attend have been chosen because they show the exceptional promise Jefferson envisioned.
