Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation

Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation Increases Productivity and Data Integrity with Blackbaud® NetCommunity™

The Foundation of Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital exists to ensure that the best possible healthcare is available to residents of California’s Central Coast. The Foundation conducts six fundraising events annually: the Women’s Trailride, the Men’s Trailride, The Children’s Miracle Network Gourmet Gala, Cherry’s Jubilee Motorsport Festival, and the Berries and Branches holiday home tour. Foundation supported events fund important healthcare initiatives and its support of the Children's Miracle Network Telethon over the past 20 years has added tens of thousands of dollars to efforts benefiting the well-being of children in the community.


  • Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation needed a solution that would enable an online store with cart functionality.
  • For security reasons, the Foundation also needed a hosted system.
  • Additionally, the organization was spending far too much time manually entering data from its previous online registration system into its donor management database, The Raiser’s Edge®.


  • The Foundation selected Blackbaud NetCommunity because it allowed supporters to purchase multiple items online during a single shopping experience.
  • With Blackbaud NetCommunity the Foundation is able to gather all necessary information and permissions from event participants in a single online form.
  • In order to ensure the security of credit card information, the organization selected Blackbaud’s hosted option.


  • Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation increased donations 375 percent in a 12-month period.
  • The Foundation saw a 30 percent increase in the number of items purchased online and saved significant time eliminating the need to manually enter event data.
