VMI Alumni Agencies

Virginia Military Institute Alumni Agencies Uses Blackbaud Solutions to Achieve an Easy-To-Use Software System that Enables Staff To Work More Efficiently

Founded in 1839, the Virginia Military Institute is a four-year undergraduate college awarding BA and BS degrees. The nation’s first state military college, VMI has a large alumni body with strong ties to the institution.


The Virginia Military Institute Alumni Agencies was relying on a custom-developed solution to manage its fundraising and financial needs, which required programming expertise to access critical reports.


The organization chose Blackbaud solutions because they are functionally extensive, integrated, and would provide a self-service model that the alumni agencies needed.


By implementing The Raiser’s Edge®, The Financial Edge™, The Information Edge™, and Blackbaud® NetCommunity™, the organization was able to offer a self-serve model where staff can find their own answers to important questions. Collaborating with Blackbaud has allowed the organization to eliminate the need for a programmer, reducing personnel costs by $90,000 annually, and attract qualified staff more easily.
