Thank you for supporting our students and the Walsh mission. It has been a challenging several months and your support ensures that students continue their journey to fulfill their educational goals and advance their careers.

The purpose of this communication is to share that we were recently notified that Blackbaud, Inc., our provider of fundraising and donor management software, was the victim of a data security incident. Blackbaud advised Walsh that the incident did not involve the dissemination of unprotected credit card information, bank account information, usernames, passwords, or Social Security numbers. Blackbaud represents that it has undertaken a thorough investigation, has engaged law enforcement, and has implemented measures to mitigate potential consequences associated with the incident.

Although we have no reason to doubt Blackbaud’s assertions, please know that promptly following our receipt of their notice, our team, which includes outside counsel, began an independent investigation. While we have no basis at this time for concluding that any donor private information has been compromised, Walsh will continue to assess the situation and will update you if we discover any information that leads us to a different conclusion.

If you have any questions or concerns related to this incident, please contact us at advancement@walshcollege.edu.
