DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Blackbaud Inc. has announced lay-offs of 150 employees across their entire organization, 50 of which are based out of Charleston.

Senior Public Relations Manager Melanie Mathos said Tuesday the employees will remain at the company until the end of January.

Mathos said some employees will be held on longer and all laid-off employees will be provided with support during their "transition."

Mathos said, "This restructuring provides us with the right foundation to ensure that we deliver the right products, services, and support that our customers, partners, and investors expect from us. We are confident that these changes will allow us to serve them better and more efficiently so we can strengthen our offerings and grow into the future."

Blackbaud is a supplier of software and services specifically designed for nonprofit organizations. The company's products focus on fundraising, website management, CRM, analytics, financial management, ticketing, and education administration.

Blackbaud recently merged with Convio, a similar company based out of Austin, Texas.

In 2010, the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and SC Biz Magazine said it was one of the best places to work in the state.
