ADVANCEMENT DIVISION UPDATE: Starting in the spring of 2016, the Eastern Michigan University Foundation began preparing to convert EMU’s alumni and donor database from Banner Advancement to Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge, which will provide a first-class technology solution for our advancement related activities. We are approaching the final phase of this conversion, and we want to notify all of our constituents and campus partners that Banner Advancement will be unavailable starting 2/1/17, and our new database, Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge, will be operational on or about 2/27/17. During this three-week period of time, while we are in-between systems, we will be unable to process manual gifts and receipts or data requests/reports. Our giving page located at emufoundation.org/give will be live during this transition so that donors may continue to make contributions. We will begin to resume gift processing and data reporting as soon as our new database is operational. Thank you for your patience as we work through the final phase of our conversion. We are very excited to be able to utilize this first-class technology solution in the very near future. Should you have any questions, please contact Laura Wilbanks at (734) 487-6540.
