  • Blackbaud Update

    We have recently been informed of a security breach at one of our vendors, Blackbaud. We have been told that no personal, identifiable data has been stolen, but out of an abundance of caution, we wanted to inform our alumni and friends about the situation.

    Blackbaud, which is a cloud software company that provides fundraising and financial management software for non-profits dedicated to the “social good,” is used by many leading organizations around the country to engage with their communities. Blackbaud has recently announced that they were the victim of a ransomware attack in May.

    The attack is currently under investigation by the FBI. Due to the nature of the ongoing FBI activity, we haven’t been told how many records were impacted from our account or been given any other details that we can verify at this time. You can read more about the incident on the Blackbaud site.

    We are currently working with our legal counsel to determine next steps. If we receive more information that is pertinent to our community, we will share it as soon as we are given clearance to do so.

    If you have any questions, please reach out to giving@purchase.edu.

    Thank you for your continued support of Purchase College and for your patience as we navigate this issue.​
