As advances in technology continuously drive product innovation, Blackbaud releases new products, features, and services that help nonprofit organizations achieve their missions. This means that clients can realize new value from the consistent investment and advancement of many Blackbaud solutions while Blackbaud simultaneously prepares more mature products for product end of life. 

Support for FundWare will end on December 31, 2017. After December 31, 2017, Blackbaud will no longer provide support or updates for FundWare. This includes bug fixes, as well as security and compliance measures. The end-of-year update for 2016 and toolbox c were the last tax updates for FundWare before it's end of life date 12/31/2017.

In preparation for the end-of-support for FundWare, your Blackbaud account manager contacted you to discuss your upgrade to Financial Edge NXT.

If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes to notify your Blackbaud account team of your migration plans and review the FundWare migration planning guide.

Please note that a typical migration takes 6+ months, so in order to best partner together for a successful implementation, we required that you made your migration decision before June 30th in order to guarantee that your migration project would be complete prior to 12/31/2017. 

Any migration contracts signed after the June 30th deadline will be viewed as new FENXT sales and are not guaranteed to be live on FENXT prior to December 31, 2017. If an organization continues to use FundWare into 2018 due to missing the migration contract deadline, they are assuming the risks of using an unsupported financial solution, including potential payroll compliance issues for Federal and State taxes, as well as data file challenges. We recommend that clients be diligent about their data backups if they are using FundWare beyond 12/31/17.

FundWare maintenance contracts will not extend beyond December 31, 2017.  If you have any questions about your maintenance renewal or how it will be impacted by the end-of-support for FundWare, please email blackbaudrenewals@blackbaud.com

If you would like to start your migration planning now, please email solutions@blackbaud.com, chat with sales, or call 800.443.9441.
