The office, which will be located at 51/F, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queens Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, will also enable Blackbaud to enhance its corporate initiative in serving international organizations and helping them grow their global brands.

“Blackbaud setting up a permanent office in the region is a clear sign of the growth our industry is experiencing, both in terms of revenue and expertise,” said Vincent Law, CFRE, president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Hong Kong chapter. “AFP is pleased to partner with Blackbaud on developing continuous professional education and best-practice programs for the region.”
