We recently became aware that Blackbaud, a company that provides fundraising and donor relations software and services for Southwestern Medical Foundation (“SWMF”) and other nonprofit organizations around the world, was the target of a ransomware attack that comprised certain data associated with Blackbaud’s clients, including SWMF. We are contacting those donors whose data may have been impacted by this issue. Looking forward, Blackbaud confirmed that it has implemented changes designed to enhance its protection of client data, including that of SWMF donors. We take this matter very seriously, and we want you to know that keeping our donors’ information safe is of the utmost importance to us.
