Blackbaud has validated compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS).

Schellman &Company LLC (previously Brightline) performed the PCI DSS validation for Blackbaud’s solutions within the hosted environment. Blackbaud offers both hosted and locally-installed payment solutions because all nonprofits operate differently. Alternatively, Blackbaud’s locally-installed payment solutions are PCI certified and compliant with PA-DSS.

Please see Blackbaud's  BBIS Compliance Validation Certificate  and BBPS Compliance Validation Certificate for more information.
