Trebas Institute Announces Software Partnership

Toronto, ON – March 2, 2016 — Trebas Institute students will have their career opportunities grow as a result of the school’s support and contribution from Blackbaud, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLKB), makers of Raiser’s Edge software and the most sought after software for organizations in the not-for-profit/fundraising sectors.

“We’re proud to welcome Blackbaud to Trebas,” says Luisa Tanzi, Vice-President, Trebas Institute. “Together we are supporting the commitment that students have made in their event management education, in addition to reinforcing our commitment of investing in their future needs.”

“The generosity of Blackbaud Inc. will make an immediate impact for the careers of our Event & Venue Management students,” said Marilyn Wasney, Department Head for the Program. “The not-for-profit/fundraising industries are competitive so the software arrived at a great time for the students looking to gain an advantage when seeking to secure positions in these areas. Unless a student is working in an organization that offers the software, they typically did not have the opportunity to learn it – now they do, closing a gap and making them more industry ready.”

“Blackbaud is pleased to support Trebas Institute and the Event & Venue Management program, as learning the Raiser’s Edge will allow students in the program to gain real-world experience using this nonprofit CRM. They will be able to better market themselves in the sector, when looking for work after the program,” according to Ed Van Hooydonk, Account Executive for Blackbaud Canada.

“The Event & Venue Diploma Program offered at Trebas is one-year in length and includes all education necessary for the student to get a great position plus an Internship component,” said Sat Balraj, Campus Director.

For those seeking to learn the software, in addition to rookie workshops for beginners, Trebas is looking to offer refresher workshops for those individuals already non-profit industry.
