Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
(d)     On March 15, 2007, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Blackbaud, Inc. appointed Carolyn Miles as member of its Board. Ms. Miles was appointed as a Class A director, and will hold office until Blackbaud’s 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders or until her successor is elected and qualified.
     The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board (the “Committee”) conducted the search for director candidates. Although the Committee has not formulated any specific minimum qualifications for director candidates, it has determined that desirable characteristics include strength of character, mature judgment, career specialization, relevant technical skills, diversity and independence. After reviewing several director candidates, the Committee recommended Ms. Miles for appointment to the Board.
     The Board committees that Ms. Miles will serve on will be disclosed in Blackbaud’s proxy statement relating to its 2007 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
     There were no arrangements or understandings between Ms. Miles and any other person pursuant to which Ms. Miles was appointed as a director. Ms. Miles is the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Save the Children, a nonprofit corporation based in Westport, Connecticut. Save the Children is a customer of Blackbaud, and paid Blackbaud approximately $215,000 for software and services in 2006.
     An announcement regarding the appointment of Ms. Miles to the Board was released on March 21, 2007, a copy of which is attached hereto.
