DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - One of the Lowcountry's larger employers is cutting the ribbon on its new Daniel Island world headquarters Wednesday.
Blackbaud, a software company focused in the philanthropic sphere, says its 360,000-square foot, eco-friendly campus will not only accommodate some its currents workforce but also bring in 300 new jobs over the next five years.
"For nearly 30 years we've called South Carolina home, and we're proud to deepen our roots in this great state with this generational investment," Blackbaud's president and CEO Mike Gianoni said in a statement. "This community is very important to us, and this project improves our ability to give back in even more meaningful ways while boosting the local economy. I'd like to thank the State of South Carolina, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Berkeley County, and the City of Charleston for their continued support of Blackbaud, and for their commitment to making South Carolina a place where technology companies and those they employ can thrive."
The site will also host the company's ongoing community activism programs like Camp Blackbaud, an employee-led STEM program that teaches elementary school children how to design and code.
