CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT Royal Belfast Academical Institution Founded over 200 years ago, The Royal Belfast Academical Institution (RBAI) is one of Northern Ireland's leading grammar schools. Educating boys aged between 11 and 18 from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds, the school is renowned for encouraging excellence and participation, ensuring that every boy is well supported so they can perform to the best of their abilities. The Development and Alumni Relations office was launched in 2013 to engage past pupils, promote the ethos of the school and build a sustainable fundraising programme to support the development of the school. The Development and Alumni Relations Office is the hub for communications with past pupils and friends of the school. Peter Anderson, Director of Development and Alumni Relations at RBAI, shared with us the positive impact eTapestry is having on the School's development activities. Why did you decide to implement eTapestry? "Having used Raiser's Edge, Blackbaud's flagship fundraising solution, for more than ten years in the charitable and university sectors, I was well aware of the benefits that such a solution can bring. "However, I knew Raiser's Edge was not the appropriate solution for a start-up context like ours and was immediately drawn to eTapestry during the tender process. The first thing that struck me was the agility of the system, and the ease with which we could run queries and generate communications. "eTapestry is absolutely perfect for our size of school, and I know it has the capability to grow with us as our development activities extend and diversify. I would recommend it without hesitation" —Peter Anderson, Director of Development and Alumni Relations Royal Belfast Academical Institution is powered by: eTapestry ® Learn more +44 (0) 207 601 7100 solutions@blackbaud.co.uk fundraising.blackbaud.co.uk/etapestry
